3. Kevin Love
The main go-to player for the Minnesota Timberwolves for years, Kevin Love may not have been able to take his team to the playoffs but he was thought to be one of the best Power Forwards in the game.  Before he would become the “third option” and an NBA Champion in Cleveland, Love would become a two-time Second Team All-NBA Selection and a three-time All-Star.  Love did not exactly leave Minnesota on the best of terms, as he was upset that Minnesota was never a contender but it was not for the lack of effort from the former UCLA Bruin.
