Golden State head coach Mark Jackson had high praise Wednesday morning for Wolves forward Kevin Love. In an interview on the Dan Patrick show, Jackson called Love one of the best rebounders in NBA history.

The Wolves play Jackson's Warriors tonight at the Target Center so Patrick had Jackson on his morning radio show and brought up the NBA General Manager voting two weeks ago. The league's GMs decided that Love accomplishes the most with limited natural ability.

"I think really it's a heck of a compliment when you look at it," Jackson said of Love's award. "He's got no business -- when you look at his toolset -- of being one of the all-time great rebounders that this league has ever seen."

"He's undersized, he's not jumping out the building, he's a hard worker and he takes his profession seriously... You can't teach it. You can make a guy better, but you can't really teach what he does."

The Wolves and Warriors tip off Wednesday night at 7 p.m.
