And a tweet from Ric Bucher today:
RicBucher: Also: KLove could be a major factor for Team USA. Has all the internat'l big-man tools, including 3-pt range, aka Brad Miller on '98 squad.
With David Lee, Stoudemire, and Robin Lopez all having to drop out...Love seems like a sure thing to make the team. The other bigs fighting for a spot are Brook Lopez, Tyson Chandler, JaVale McGee, and Jeff Green. Even though I'm a Love apologist, I have to assume that many of the people on this page would be pretty excited to see Love start on the USA basketball team...even though it's just pre-pre-preliminary games.
That being said, it's still surprising that Love could beat out Brook Lopez, Tyson Chandler, and Jeff Green for starting spots this summer, after being unable to usurp Ryan Hollins/Darko Milicic last season. He must have really improved this off-season!
