Kevin Love Wins ‘Whitest White NBA Player’ Award

Kevin-Love-White-Guy-AwardI read this story and I knew it needed mention on the site.

In a preseason survey of all 30 NBA general managers, the NBA asks an odd question…but one they have asked many times previously.

“Which player makes the most of limited natural ability?”

Oh yes, that’s a real question. That sounds like something we would ask an NBA GM on a podcast.

Well, Kevin Love was the overwhelming answer to that question (he also won last preseason). He has actually won this distinction numerous times. Who are some of the players who also received votes in for this year’s ‘most unathletic, productive NBA player’ award? We list some of the names…and yes, you will not be shocked by the players who landed on this list.

In this 2013 survey, the other players who finished in the top five (in order) are:

  • Kevin Love
  • Marc Gasol
  • Matt Bonner
  • Jared Dudley
  • J.J. Berea

You have four white guys and Dudley, who is biracial. The NBA GMs really know how to stereotype.

To answer your question – Yes, Steve Nash also won this award numerous times.

Steve Kerr feels Kevin Love’s pain with a few funny tweets.
