It feels like it has been absolutely forever since we've seen two of the NBA's most promising young power forwards.

Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin and Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love both made the 2011 All-Star team, but they also both failed to qualify for the NBA playoffs. It's been months since either has been in the headlines, other than when Love expressed some skepticism that Ricky Rubio would actually come play for the Timberwolves.

That changes today, as the pair face off in a game of Jenga for a pretty hilarious "behind the scenes" style video.

Shot to help promote the ESPYs, the NBA's reigning Slam Dunk Champion and Most Improved Player get ultra-competitive as they attempt to pull Jenga pieces without knocking over the tower.

"Concentation," Griffin says when asked how playing the game might help him during the NBA's lockout.

"A good hobby," Love interjects. "Keeps your mind focused on the task at hand. We both play down on the blocks."

"Also, the floor is made of wood and Jenga pieces are also made of wood," Griffin concludes.

 Here's a look at the video courtesy of YouTube user ESPN. Stick around for the winning and losing reactions, which are pretty hilarious.

@steelnorm...lol...Both Griffin and Love don't need college.  Both men are and will make enough cash that will allow them to live comfortably when their NBA careers are over.
