Ask Bob Love about his greatest accomplishment and he likely won’t mention basketball. Instead, he’ll talk about overcoming his stuttering problem.
In spite of his success as an athlete, Love was not able to do something that everyone else seemed to do easily – talk without stuttering. When Love retired from basketball, he tried for seven years to find a steady job and, in 1984, was hired as a restaurant dishwasher for $4.45 an hour.
Eventually, the owner of the restaurant offered to pay for speech therapy classes and, in 1983, Love returned to the Chicago Bulls as their director of community relations. In recent years, Love has become a sought-after motivational speaker.
During his playing career, Love flourished while playing for Dick Motta's Bulls. In 1969-1970, he became a full-time starter, averaging 21 points and 8.7 rebounds. The following two seasons he averaged 25.2 and 25.8 points per game, appeared in his first two All-Star Games and earned All-NBA Second Team honors both seasons. Love also appeared in the 1973 All-Star Game and would average at least 19 points and six rebounds every season until 1977. Love was named to the NBA's All-Defense Second Team in 1974 and 1975.
Love retired in 1977 with career totals of 13,895 points and 4,653 rebounds. His #10 jersey was the second jersey to be retired by the Chicago Bulls.
Prior to his NBA career, Love played collegiately at Southern University, where he earned All-America honors in 1963.
