While he was in Minnesota to watch Jahlil Okafor and Tyus Jones go at it on the court before becoming Duke teammates next year, he also talked to Sid Hartman of the Star-Tribune about Kevin Love. More to the point, he raved about Love, saying that “I love the fact that he’s committed himself. [Love] was a member of our world championship team in Istanbul in 2010, and then a key member of our Olympic team in London and will continue to play for the United States.

“It shows his commitment to the game, to improvement, to his country. I think he has embraced being here in Minnesota. I think he loves the people here and wants to help build a special team. I love Kevin, no pun intended, I love Kevin Love. I would always want Kevin Love on my team.”

Love has been spectacular so far this season and has had 13 consecutive double-doubles, including 42 points and 14 boards against San Antonio Friday night.
