According to SI, the Big Twitter is now looking to add something new to his resume. Team USA Basketball player.
Kevin Love is known around the league as a superb rebounder for his age, and, for now, a high class role player. Team USA is finishing it’s roster off, and needs another big man to put next to Dwight Howard and Chris Bosh. The type of player that Coach K. has said he is looking for is the ultimate role player, which is exactly what you get with KLove. He can hit the open J, make superb passes, and has a very high basketball IQ for a PF his age. And best of all, by 2012, he can only get better.
This would be a great opportunity for KLove, as he needs to experience what it feels to play with and against the best players in the world. I’ve always said that the only way to improve is to play against better competition, which is exactly what the Olympics are: The pinnacle of competition.
And for what it’s worth I’ll buy my first Team USA jersey if they do bring Love in to Team USA (I never got a KG one because I never wanted to see him in colors that weren’t the Wolves’ that worked out well).
