So, we bring you this photo of Kevin Love during the dunk fest against Tunisia.

    OMG, misspelled “feat” (embarrassed). Corrected: Getting ready for the 2013 All Star Slam Dunk contest, Kevin Love is seen here practicing taking it to the “next level” by jamming his head into a ball and jumping through the hoop feet-first! This awesome feat requires a 12′ vertical!

    The crowd was apprehensive about that night’s souvenir ballbehead giveaway until Love demonstrated how it didn’t impair one’s vision by deftly jumping up to grab the rim. After that it was a riotous success.

    Gotta admit, pretty admirable thing for Kevin Love to do in giving his Olympic spot to Strongbad from Homestar Runner. Welcome back Strongbad!
