Love outdoes Lebron with off-the-wall dunk at Wolves practice


Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love did his best to try and outdo Lebron James' shirtless practice dunk, during the week of the NBA's All-Star festivities.

Love and his teammates are enjoying a three-day break in the midst of a five-game road trip.

FOX Sports Net posted Love's highlight-reel off-the-wall-reverse dunk from Wolves practice in Phoenix on Thursday.

Love's teammates seemed to delight in Love's dunk, especially Wolves rookie Gorgui Dieng, whose scream appears to be the one heard roaring on the video, according to 1500 ESPN.

The Wolves will have one more practice in Phoenix on Friday before they leave for Sacramento. The Timberwolves will play the Kings in Sacramento on Saturday night, it is the fourth stop on their current five-game road trip.

James' dunks went viral after he showed off his spectacular dunking abilities during a Miami Heat practice the week of the NBA's Dunk Contest.

Did Love outdo Lebron? Well that's for you to decide.
