Minnesota Timberwolves All-Star forward Kevin Love has plans to join several other NBA stars in a two-week, six-game exhibition tour that will take place over four continents. The NBA has already cancelled the first two weeks of the regular season, and many of the league’s top stars have organized events during the lockout. Michael Beasley of the Timberwolves has organized this Friday’s exhibition game that will take place at Osseo High School. This tour would be the biggest event involving NBA players during a league work stoppage.
Sources have said most of the league’s top stars will play on the tour including Lebron James, Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony, and Derrick Rose just to name a few. Some have said former Timberwolves star Kevin Garnett is also thinking about joining the tour. The players would get paid, some as much as $1 million, for playing on the tour.
The tour would take place from October 30th through November 9th, but would ultimately be cancelled if the lockout were to come to an end soon.
