DraftExpress: 2008 Top Vegas Summer League PERs Jerryd Bayless Alando Tucker Dahntay Jones JaJuan Smith Kevin Love Anthony Morrow Jermareo Davidson

DraftExpress: Kevin Love's measureables: 6-7 3/4 w/out shoes, 6-11 1/4 wingspan. Can't jump over a phone book. MVP candidate. What can we learn from that?

DraftExpress: Kyle Anderson looking to give UCLA fans Kevin Love flashbacks with these outlet passes.

DraftExpress: Yes. He had a lot of doubters. RT @RobDauster: Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that the same thing that was said about Kevin Love?
