Following the Timberwolves’ Sunday night win over the Mavericks, Lamar Odom compared Kevin Love (who torched Dallas with 25 points and 17 boards) to Pistons’ great Bill Laimbeer. Per the Star-Telegram: “He’s almost like a new version of (Bill) Laimbeer to me,’ Odom, the Mavs’ forward, said. ‘Almost Laimbeer-like. But a little bit more athletic.’ Love showed off that athleticism when he converted a gorgeous step-back three-point field goal during a key moment of the fourth quarter. That three-pointer followed another three-pointer by Love on the T-Wolves’ previous trip up the court and soared Minnesota ahead 90-82 with 4:07 left.”

So it would only make sense at this point for news to trickle out of...
