Ask Kevin Love where he was picked in the All-Star game draft, and he’ll have a little bit of fun with his answer.

“Where was I picked? I don’t know. Probably dead last,” Love said jokingly on Friday, per cleveland.com. “I’m the guy in the pickup game where during the summer it’s like, ‘OK, he’s a big guy that can shoot. Guess I will take him.’ I’m not going to do the between-the-legs dunks, windmills, but I’m going to be getting those rebounds and outletting the ball. I guess I add some value with that. I know Russ (Westbrook) will like it.”

Love also said he thinks the draft should televised next year, echoing thoughts from teammate (and his All-Star game captain) LeBron James.

“I think it should be televised,” Love said. “I know I just joked about being the last pick, but even if you are, you’re still an All-Star, playing in the game, going to get your shot. It’s fun. It’s all part of it. I think it should definitely be televised. It kind of adds to the game, adds to the value, adds to the viewership and overall fun for the fans and that’s what it’s all about.”
