Timberwolves forward Kevin Love has decided to try his hand at beach volleyball and will be competing at next month’s Manhattan Beach Open on the ATP Pro Volleyball Tour:
“I thought it was a great idea, a way for me to be out in the sun, be active and have fun during the lockout,” Love said Tuesday after practicing with pros for the first time. “It’s sport, it’s active, it’s a way to stay in shape, so I just thought it was a home run.”
The Minnesota Timberwolves All-Star doesn’t have a partner yet and hadn’t played much lately before working out Tuesday on a court set up in Times Square, but says he hopes to survive the first day of the three-day, $200,000 event to be held from Aug. 26-28.
“More than anything, I’m just going to be having fun with it, playing as much as I can up to that point and just working on my craft,” Love said.
I feel bad for the person who’ll be at the end of a K-Love spike.
