K-Love the octopus is part of the team of 10,000 sea creatures from SEA LIFE Minnesota Aquarium at Mall of America. The Vulgaris (or common) octopus was named after basketball legend, and Timberwolves player, Kevin Love. Now that he’s been traded to Cleveland, they’re also trading the name, but the octopus gets to stay. Here’s the press release, ” The memories Kevin Love has given the Timberwolves will stay in Minnesota, and the octopus will be staying at SEA LIFE Minnesota as well. The K-Love name, however, will be traded to the Greater Cleveland Aquarium to be used for their giant pacific octopus. Trading K-Love naming rights will give SEA LIFE Minnesota Aquarium a fresh new start and naming flexibility in the future for its young octopus. In return for the trade, the Greater Cleveland Aquarium will be giving SEA LIFE Minnesota the rights to its Octopus name, Ocho. SEA LIFE Minnesota will most likely drop Ocho for a new name soon that will match Andrew Wiggins, the key piece in the trade” Very weird. Check the VIDEO BELOW when Kevin Love met up with K-Love.-TO
