Timberwolves forward Kevin Love was named the NBA's best power forward heading into the 2012-13 season in a survey of the NBA's 30 general managers released Monday, Oct. 22, by NBA.com. The survey polled the general managers on a variety of topics.

Love, out six to eight weeks with a broken right hand, received 30 percent of the votes. The two-time all-star was listed ahead of Dallas' Dirk Nowitzki, Miami's LeBron James and Portland's LaMarcus Aldridge. Boston's Kevin Garnett and Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers were tied for fifth.
