It's a good year for Love

Kevin Love, that is. The Minnesota Timberwolves power forward was named a NBA All Star for the second straight year and won the 3-point shooting contest. Now an octopus at the Sea Life Minnesota Aquarium has been named after him — no doubt the strangest honor he'll receive all year.
It's a good year for Love

Striking resemblance, right?

As reported by the Associated Press:

The Minnesota Timberwolves All-Star is scheduled to formally release K-Love the Octopus into the cephalopod’s new tank in a ceremony at the mall on Thursday afternoon. Love will also feed the octopus and give it a special basketball toy, with a group of children sponsored by a local charity for cancer and other life-threatening medical conditions.

The Sea Life Aquarium at the Mall of America, Minnesota named their new cephalopod after Kevin Love because of his exceptional rebounding skills.  Love is averaging 13.8 rebounds per game this season ... not bad for a two-armed species!
