09:03 AM ET 09.25 | Timberwolves all-star Kevin Love says on ESPN's Grantland blog that for the first time since high school, his offseason workouts have resulted in the 6-foot-10 forward weighing less than 240 pounds. That would be a decrease of about 20 pounds from last season for the NBA rebounding king.

In Minnie, there's a thin line between Love and hate. Hoping for a playoff run for Deuces.

Go HEELS!!!!!!

As long as Love remains in Minnesota, is won't matter. This team isn't going anywhere--with or without him.

Is that really a good thing? I mean he needs to battle big forwards and centers sometimes. he may need that additional bulk.

In the blog post, he talks about also being stronger. That's what's going to help him battle 4s and 5s, not pounds.

Here's hoping 20 less lbs will increase K Loves desire to play def. Perhaps he can get around a player or two in the 1/2 court as well. Big fan, but I want victories not computer game stats!!!
