07:23 AM ET 01.09 | Perhaps Kevin Love could use a late voter push. The Timberwolves planned to unveil promotions at Wednesday night's game designed to help secure the franchise's first All-Star Game starter since Kevin Garnett in 2007. ... [Love] is in fourth place in voting among Western Conference frontcourt players behind Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant, Houston's Dwight Howard and the Los Angeles Clippers' Blake Griffin, according to NBA numbers released in late December. Griffin, in third place, had a lead of about 22,000 votes on Love. The top three in fan voting will start the game Feb. 16 in New Orleans. Wolves backup center Ronny Turiaf said Love has put in his marketing work on the court. "What more can he do?" Turiaf said of Love.

Kinda stupid! Let your game do the talking and market itself. Don't go begging for votes. This is a shallow move if Love is the one heading this marketing. The TWolves should be the ones heading this marketing for votes.

I don't know if he starts but he makes the all-star team. Lamarcus Aldridge, Kevin Durant, and Demarcus Cousin are having a super season, do Kevin Love play ahead of these guys? The west is tough to make decisions, Love is a super player but in a tough place when it comes to selections. He definitely make the all-star team; good luck with starting ahead of the names mentioned.

They should be wanting Love to start in playoff games more than anything. Time for Love and Rubio to get them to the big show this year.

In honor of the T-Wolves push, Love went out and stunk the court up and watched as his team got beat on a desperation shot by Gerald Green of Phoenix. Then the Wolves had a chance to win and Martin short armed a 4 footer. The Wolves didn't even try to go to Love for the last shot.

Love is a much better big man than Howard or Griffin.
