Kevin Love said he understood the criticism of him making the Olympic team, but vowed to prove himself with his performances.

"In a way I understand [the criticism] because I came off a season where I didn't play that many games and wasn't at the top of my game," Love said. "For me to come here, I feel I have a lot to prove."

Love last played for Team USA in 2012, and hasn't made the All-Star team since 2018.
