The best power forward in the NBA, Minnesota's Kevin Love, took home the title in the three point shootout last evening in Orlando.
Love kept just squeaking by in all three rounds but in the end it was enough to hold off Mario Chalmers and then Kevin Durant in the finals.
The 6'10 Love is averaging 25.0 points and 14.0 rebounds per game at the break. There is no question he should be starting the real All-Star game on Sunday night but unfortunately anytime something is put to fan voting the real outcome hardly ever wins out.
For now, Love will relish this trophy which he owes to his success on the moneyballs where he nailed 10 of 16 "two pointers" on the night.
