Corning down here in Minnesota Timberwolves superstar Kevin Love who hasn't been that arrogant -- 2011. Gatorade athlete of the year weren't having you aren't a Gatorade at the end the year before what memories does summer like this bring -- I just American up on the podium and not stumbling over receive a similar moment whereas when I won I remember looking and seeing. Greg Oden and Vince Carter up and I thought you know it's going to be best ultimately as I -- to hang. Think it has only -- hopefully hear something from you as it was you know pretty nerve -- but obviously a tremendous sign because not only. Doesn't you know so that's excellence on the court but also off the court as well so I think honestly this. This award. You know even today is is one of the most prestigious awards if not the most the season and all of them I. It's worth you know you're coming up a breakout season that some runs this year a lot of UCLA and take a lot of pride in your success you know you're only with them right here likes. -- their support influence. -- means a lot I still Tuesday TV excessive a lot of friends my class -- I would have been him. Actually as a in this series so keeps us a lot of them as -- upperclassmen on -- endeavors. And I feel that you know their support and done it definitely means a lot and that's part of the reason that -- with the -- near Westwood in in California throughout the offseason. About two weeks into a -- every now. What your initial thoughts when and it -- went through with the lockout and caught the impact of these aren't. I really hasn't exactly two months I have you know sign up for Bosnian season treated like any other offseason and -- really. Open and now we're -- zimbalist says it you know players that are -- -- in the Summers on the city continue to do that but. You know and it went and it's a lot I did that stunt it was. A little bit of a crazy thing obviously a dozen subjects are both and it NBA and NFL so I just really hope that. Seems to figure it out as quickly as possible so we can have a season we don't listen listen. As an accident how concerned are you that you might miss the entire -- I simply -- it's it's it's you know it's it's also tough on the -- alone you know tough on tough on everybody in the players the coaches and and everybody involved all the way down through. -- -- -- music trainers because -- they'll wanna be involved in in the NBA and NFL as well so I think. You know it would be great if we -- did it figured out somewhere both sides and is to have the success -- with the agreement and you know just displayed last month and play football because I think naslund and the lesson of this. You know right now not -- the lockout and a big news but here's your head -- her and it's just got tired after two seasons and 32 wins total with -- analysts. What's gonna shake up you know at that point into the organization right now. Doesn't think his ticket out. You know we're gonna have to try to find those. It's passed away -- -- as possible so we didn't. Well in the -- did not because you know hopefully when that time comes. We have a -- -- and -- are working with him and you know he knows he wants out there on the court but. I was the best record. You know his endeavors and also. As a player's coach great guy -- that it is. Gonna -- around him you know he's he's from a plethora of winning he's doing one as a player to -- reminders of Clark Kent glasses in the -- helmets. You know being -- -- in the in his excellent job -- the Lakers will. On the hot seat and obviously you hear me working out you know on a more -- -- season you work out in Los Angeles with glee at any guys feel very close. Yeah yeah we're -- because he's so I was talking about -- -- the doing -- -- and I'll ask that you know that would that would do you know we may -- that -- have some fun together he's. There's been DC he's -- nosed and hard work and -- it you know like to hear what I was. And I think that's milling around one around here we don't know -- and the third round yeah. Your lips are sealed. -- As we have a lot of money yeah so there. As you -- I'm confident with the way things are doubtless. I don't know that it. To be because I wanted to be because we don't know I out. That is true. Right well we'll see I guess we'll see a couple days isn't Kessel the last thing you know UCLA on an upward swing -- but when he defeated the Bruins. Aren't. I think it's great I mean I think if and I'm Josh Smith told number no that's not the way it's. From North Carolina. They have a whole slew of good big players on teams I think it does ours their size doesn't they can really. Didn't say didn't have -- -- hours. With the defense that they have that you really be effective number I mean I don't see why they -- have him -- and -- and an unfamiliar. With the for the next few. -- I think everything is it.
