Kevin Love Likes His Chances to Make Olympic Team as This Year’s ‘Token White Guy’


Kevin Love Likes His Chances to Make Olympic Team as This Year's 'Token White Guy'Kevin Love is one of the best big men in the world. For that reason, he's probably a pretty safe bet to make this year's U.S. Olympic team. 

The Minnesota Timberwolves forward thinks he has something else going for him as well.

Love appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday night to talk about everything, including his prospects at making the squad for this summer's Olympics in London. He thinks that in addition to an incredible knack for rebounding as well as a talented offensive game, his skin color could help him make the team.

"Well it's interesting. For me, I don't know if I have to [try out] because they always need at least one token white guy," Love joked. "I think that I have a pretty good shot of making it there.

"It's like the white guy in the gang. He's the one you really gotta watch out for."

Love, who is one of the 18 finalists for this year's roster, played for Team USA in the 2010 FIBA World Championship.
