Is Minnesota Timberwolves All-Star forward Kevin Love overrated? According to New York Knicks center Tyson Chandler, there is an aspect of Love’s game that is. As reported on March 5, Chandler said Love “can’t play D.”

The comment came at halftime of Wednesday night’s game between the Knicks and Timberwolves. Chandler was asked about adjustments that needed to be made in the game since Kevin Love presented such a mismatch with his ability to spread the floor. He was also asked how he could take advantage of Love on the other end of the court.

Chandler responded by saying he had to go at the Minnesota scoring machine because “he can’t play D.” Tyson Chandler went on to score 14 points while adding 15 points in a 118-106 Knicks victory.

The comment about Kevin Love’s defensive game is nothing new as he was developing a reputation for struggling on the defensive end. Although he has been improving recently, he will have to continue to improve to be one of the top all around players in the game, especially as he enters free agency in 2015. The New York Knicks are one of the teams that may have an interest in landing Love.
