The decision to add Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love to this year’s Olympic line-up has certainly raised some eyebrows in the basketball community. But that controversy has since been crushed.

After two poor performances in defeat in exhibition games, the 32-year-old veteran withdrew from the team – citing a nagging injury problem from the 2020 season.

Team USA director Jerry Colangelo recently explained the love situation and admitted that he may have made a “mistake” in adding him to the list.

“I didn’t think Kevin would play Love. I wasn’t even sure if he still had much to play, ”said Colangelo, according to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst. “He reached out to us and said he was in shape and said he felt he owed us something. And on that basis, we’re looking for someone with international experience who was once a real rebounder and could still shoot the ball. Do you know how to be a twelfth man on a list.

« Well, it didn’t work out. He was out of shape. And it was way back, it turned out. So you go on Call it a mistake. What is it called giving someone a chance. Someone who was part of us. ”

Love has been in US basketball since 2007 when he was just 18 years old. With a 27-0 record for Team USA, the double-double machine helped the organization win gold medals at the 2010 FIBA ​​World Championships in Istanbul and the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

After sustaining a calf injury, the Limiting him to just 25 competitions that year, Love had the worst season of his 13-year NBA career in 2020-21 – averaging just 12.2 points and 7.4 rebounds per game on a battered Cavs squad.

After his retirement earlier this month, Love was replaced by an equally controversial addition to the roster: Denver Nuggets Center JaVale McGee.

After their shaky show start in Las Vegas, Team USA continued those fights in Tokyo. The US squad falls in the opening competition of the games against France and then displaces Iran with 54 points and faces a consistent duel with the Czech Republic on Saturday.
