Love: I Was Screwed In ROY Voting
Timberwolves rookie forward Kevin Love made his displeasure with the Rookie of the Year voting public on Wednesday night.
Love didn't have a problem with Chicago's Derrick Rose winning the award, but he didn't feel as though there were five rookies better than him this past season.
"Pardon my French, but it's the second time I've gotten screwed," Love told the Pioneer Press. "I definitely thought I would finish higher, but after the rookie-sophomore snub, I guess anything can happen."
Love led rookies in rebounding and double-doubles, but five players still finished above him in the voting.
"I guess I just needed to play a little better," Love said. "Maybe a 30th double-double would have made a difference.
" ... I'll take care of my business this summer, either here in Los Angeles or in Minnesota, and come back a better player and try to help my team win. Hopefully, 15 years from now I'll be able to look back on this and laugh."
He has a point, sixth place? He is third, behind Rose and Mayo, maybe fourth, behind Brooke Lopez, but don't see any other rookie that should be ahead of him, not even Beasley, who came on pretty strong the last few eeks only
