Q&A Kevin Love

Grantland's Zach Lowe had a nice questions and answers article with Kevin Love, who has missed most of this season with a couple of hand injuries.

A highlight:

Let's take a quick break and discuss your charity work, including what you did for some kids last week, for children dealing with cancer as part of the NBA's St. Jude Children's Research Hospital Week. You've gotten some big honors for your charity work, and you really seem to put a lot of effort and thought into it.

Yeah ... for my coat drive in December, I guess, the NBA gave me the Community Assist award. That was very cool. I've been doing the coat drive for five years, and we raised over 2,500 coats for the Salvation Army. As for the St. Jude stuff, the NBA has a St. Jude Week every year, and that's how I got started with [it]. I developed a relationship with [teenager] Dylan [Witschen], and he passed away. With getting that award, I was given $10,000 to give to the charity of my choice. For me, it's always easy and great to be connected to St. Jude.

So you donated the money and had some kids come to a game and meet you last week - stand at center court, the whole deal, right?

Yeah. It was great to meet the kids and interact with them throughout the game. These were really sick kids, and it was great to give them something fun to do.
