Rick Carlisle: Kevin Love should be an NFL quarterback
Dallas Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle believes Kevin Love of the Minnesota Timberwolves, could be an NFL quarterback. During a recent interview Carlisle spoke incredibly high of the young power forward. Carlisle at one point said Love could throw a chest pass 100 yards. A bit of hyperbole no doubt, but it tells you just how great Love is at the outlet pass.
“The guy can throw a chest pass 100 yards,” the Dallas Mavericks’ coach said after Friday’s shoot around. “He should be an NFL quarterback and can throw chest passes to the receivers.”
“I remember Wes Unseld,” Carlisle said. “Unfortunately, that’s how old I am.
“Love is an equal to him in terms of his ability to outlet throws quickly. It’s a phenomenal skill.”
