Do You Swear to Tell the Truth, the Whole Truth, and Nothing But the Truth?

I could not believe my eyes when I read Diane Pucin’s May 27, 2008 article “Love works to lift his NBA stock” When Love was a Bruin, he was a perfect SUPERSTAR! Oh, what an outlet pass! Pac-10 player of the year! All-American! Now that he is “one and done” and no longer a Bruin, the unbiased truth is finally being written. What took you so long, Diane? Quotes from her article are as follows: “ to have his (Love’s) game criticized with brutal honesty --- lose weight, refine post game, show a mid-range game, prove you can defend taller, quicker players”. Joe Abunassar, founder and owner of Impact Basketball, who Love has signed up with, said, “With Kevin, it is about playing angles, holding defenders off, defending guys bigger and quicker, and can he get in shape. NBA guys are asking, is he quick enough to guard this guy, that guy? Is his endurance good enough for an 82-game season? My unbiased, TRUTHFUL answer is NO!
