Well, I don't know if Timberwolves forward Kevin Love actually loves the lockout, but he's certainly making the most of his time off. He announced today that he's joined the Jose Cuervo Pro Beach Volleyball Series and will compete in the $200,000 Manhattan Beach Open in late August. Before getting in some practice in Times Square today (photo above), Love joined the Hot Clicks podcast and shared a couple of must-hear stories: One is about his Meet the Fockers volleyball moment in junior high and the other is about his prom date.
