Kevin Love admitted that the Dallas Mavericks and NBA legend Dirk Nowitzki significantly influenced his style of play.
The Cleveland Cavaliers star said that watching Nowitzki helped him transition to a style of play with speed and space.
“He really looked at Dirk and said,” This is the guy you have to watch. “When someone has had a profound impact on my career and has been able to expand my game and play from the inside out.
Be that stretch 4 man and see where the game has now gone with pace and space and a little ball. He had the idea that bigs would get out and use their shots to their advantage, ”Love told TNT’s Ernie Johnson.
