In 79 games last season with Philadelphia, Thaddeus Young had only 10 games of 10 rebounds or more, with a high of 13.
The Royals — yes, the first-place Royals — have a makeup game at home against the Yankees that ESPN has picked up (6 p.m.) before beginning a series against the Twins on Tuesday.
“Enjoyed watching Love and his ‘stretch 4’ array of skills. Marveled at his positioning, rebounding and astounding outlet pass skills. Sometimes he’d turn in a classic 40-something points to go with 10-12-15 boards. Post moves, threes, shot fakes, left-hand jump hooks. What was missing was leadership. Understanding that leadership is performance-based, I never got the feeling Love was interested in filling that role even though he definitely performed while here.”
