Minnesota Timberwolves All-Star forward Kevin Love won the 2012 Three-Point Shootout in a year that saw him hit an astounding 41.7 percent of his shots from deep, a ridiculously high number for a big forward. Love was injured and unavailable to defend his title in the 2013 Shootout, but he’s expected to be on the list when the NBA reveals its 2014 participants.

As a result, the Minnesota Timberwolves’ very good PR team released this video on Thursday:

This season, Love’s three-point shooting is the only part of his statline that isn’t “ridiculously high,” as Love is currently “only” shooting 37 percent from long range, which is right around the league average. Still, based on making (at least) three blindfolded three-pointers in the clip above, Love seems as good a candidate as any to dethrone Cleveland’s Kyrie Irving, who won the title last season.
