He still loves sport

 

Kevin Love won’t give up his day job anytime soon. Idled by the NBA lockout, the Minnesota Timberwolves’ All-Star hit the sand to compete in his first pro beach volleyball tournament Thursday. He and his partner lost in straight sets, but Love called the action “addicting” and wants to keep honing his game. As the lowest-seeded players in the Manhattan Beach Open in California, Love and pro partner Hans Stolfus drew the top-seeded team of Sean Scott and John Hyden. Scott and Hyden took it easy on Love and Stolfus, handing them a 21-16, 21-15 defeat. “Obviously, getting beat is never fun, but being competitive, playing against the best team in the country, a team that hasn’t lost all summer, was a lot of fun,” Love said. – Associated Press
