Draft Notes

Love is an aggressive lead guard with a downhill style of play. He attacks the defense and has both power and quickness on his drives to the hoop. He doesn’t shy away from contact and he’s a guy who can finish above the rim.

Is a fierce competitor who’s energy and hustle rubs off on his teammates.

With an impressive 6-9 wingspan (measured at Nike Skills Academy) and broad shoulders he’s clearly got the size and frame for the NBA level. He’s somewhat of a power point guard who seeks out contact.

Love can break down the defense with either hand and can finish in a variety of ways including floaters and tear-drops. He can keep the defense honest with his outside shot, although at this point three point shooting isn’t a strength.

He’s not necessarily a pass-first player but he does a great job of pressuring and collapsing the defense to get open shots for teammates. He can get a bit careless with the ball and over dribble at times but that’s what happens when you’re the best player on the court (and his decision making will improve with age).
