Love is play, thus far, has been incredible as he leads Minnesota with 23.6ppg & 14.7rpg. He's also shooting 42% from 'deep' as well as 42% from the field. He's Minnesota's main man and he's performing very well.
With another all-star appearance on the horizon, it appears as though he'll also have the opportunity to compete for a roster spot on Team USA's Preliminary Roster, which includes between 17-20 players (so far). Among those names? Derrick Rose, LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Dwayne Wade, Carmelo Anthony, Blake Griffin, Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant, Dwight Howard etc. Not bad company for such a young player--still on his rookie contract (he'll be paid soon enough, however).
The team will be cut down to 12 players for this summer's competition, so it's very possible Love may not make the team. An honor for the young star, no matter what, though. Those twelve players will play next summer (2012) in the Olympics.
