Here's the latest from the Wolves' PR department, a video promoting Kevin Love for an All-Star bid. This video was sent as a DVD, along with a bottle of Numb#rs cologne, to every Western Conference coach in the hopes that they'll write down Love's name as an All-Star reserve. Also included in the package is a list of the various numbers that Kevin Love has put up this year.
The Wolves tried something similar with Big Al a while back using GPS devices, but Jefferson ultimately failed to get the nod. I think this campaign has a slightly better chance of succeeding as Love is a lot more marketable than Big Alco and he has put up stats this season the likes of which haven't been seen for a loooooooong time. Still if there's one number that will keep K. Love out of the ASG, it's "10". That's the current number of Wolves' victories.
Overall, a pretty solid effort by the Wolves PR department. My only critique is that the guy doing the voice over at the end sounds like a creepy sex predator. I guess Ted Williams wasn't available...
Love it. Very nice commercial. Where may I find this fragrance, at Sears Basement or Nordstroms? Too bad it's probably not strong enough to cover up underarm funk or the stench of a very smelly losing record. And that would be why Numb#rs doesn't get to go Hollywood. Nice commercial though.
The "612 All-Star Collection" AKA Kevin Garnett and a one year appearance by both Tom Gugliotta and Sam Cassell.
Yeah, I can't say he really deserves the nod either. His numbers are good, but wins have to factor in as well.
KLove has a cologne line. Wolves should have a vacuum line because we SUCK!
Am I the only person who feels like Kevin Love shouldn't make the allstar team?? I feel like Aldgride, Griffin, Dirk, Duncan, and Gasol are all more deserving. They have good players on their team and they still get solid numbers which helps their team win.
@9Deuce I honestly don't think he should/will make it, but I am ok with it if he does.
Massive debate about it going on now in the TWB Forums: http://twolvesblog.com/forum/nba-jam/58453-predict-the-all-stars.html
