Poll: Kevin Love NBA's best power forward

The evolution of Kevin Love is one of the NBA's most intriguing stories. The past two seasons, Love has blossomed: he averaged 20.2 points, an NBA-best 15.2 rebounds, and shot 41.7 percent from three last season. This year, a slimmed down Love has again been elite, averaging 25.2 points (fourth in the NBA) and 14.5 rebounds (second).

Love's play has been so impressive that NBA readers at Newsday.com think he has emerged as the league's premiere power forward. Voting results from last week's poll:
