Kevin Love just had an amazing comeback season. However, he still feels that players like Michael Jordan and Paul George have had better seasons.
When an NBA player gets injured or is out for a very long time, their comeback may not go as planned. Players lack speed and cunning when returning from a long break.
It rarely happens that players can regain their balance after a big injury. More players have been pulled from the league due to major injuries than have returned.
Kevin Love is coming off a brilliant comeback season. After being out for a long time, there were doubts about his return to form.
Kevin just proved all his skeptics wrong. Coming off the bench, he went 13-7-2. Solid numbers from a player whose career could have been over.
