WASHINGTON - He makes his money grabbing rebounds, but  Timberwolves forward Kevin Love is pretty darn good at the tweet game as well.

The USA Today put Love atop the list of 20 best sports debate tweets, in a night when Twitter posts were flying fast and furious. Unfortunately for Love's teammate Ricky Rubio, the spanish point guard was the butt of the joke.

Here is the USA's Top 20 list.
