On Wes and Kevin Wesley Love

L.A. Clippers coach Doc Rivers: “My dad pounded into me a million times about Wes Unseld. Every time I mentioned somebody had an outlet pass, my dad would say, ‘He’s not a Wes Unseld.’ That’s who Love is. We haven’t seen anybody like that in recent times. Charles Oakley, one of my teammates, he threw ‘em but he usually threw ‘em out of bounds. Tell him someone else said that.”

Wolves coach Rick Adelman on the best outlet passer he has ever seen: “Wes Unseld. I’ve seen him do it when he throws it off the other backboard. He was incredible, and Kevin’s got the ability to do that.”

Hall of Famer Wes Unseld when asked if Kevin Love is in his league as an outlet passer: “I never looked at it that way. I just look at it as he’s a fine player.”
