Kevin Love probably won’t be getting invited to Thanksgiving dinner at Jerry Colangelo’s house any time soon.
In an interview this week with Joe Vardon of The Athletic, Colangelo, the managing director of USA Basketball, absolutely tore into Love over Love’s withdrawal from the Tokyo Olympics.
“I didn’t think Kevin Love was gonna play,” said Colangelo. “I wasn’t even sure he had much left to play. He reached out to us and said he was in shape and said he felt he owed us. On the basis of that, we’re looking at someone with international experience who at one time was a heck of a rebounder and could still shoot the ball. You know, being like a 12th man on a roster.
