Wes Unseld was a 6-foot-7 center for the Baltimore Bullets, Capitol Bullets and — finally — Washington Bullets from 1969-1981. He had a supernatural ability to flick the ball ahead after a change of possession too, turning the outlet pass into an art form.
And it shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that Love, like any proper basketball nerd, studied Wes Unseld tapes as a kid when the rest of his peers were lowering the hoop so they could pretend to dunk.
Love showed off his old school flavor again in Game 3 against the Raptors, and LeBron finished it with a jam.
Despite the pretty full-court connection, Toronto is leading the Cavs, 58-42, in the first half on a Cavs-like bevy of three-pointers (nine so far in the first half).
