Tim Duncan. Carmelo Anthony. Kevin Durant. Kevin Love.
Yep. Love has join the very exclusive and accomplished group of NCAA March Madness 2009 cover boys. Wow. A big congrats to Love (and a shoutout to the molson for the tip), the best ambassador this program has seen since Kareem Abdul-Jabaar:
EA Sports is unveiling the cover for the new NCAA '09 game on Thursday, and it certainly seems as though new Timberwolf Kevin Love is going to be on it. How do we know that? Well, according to a press released passed along by a friend of RandBall, Love and UCLA coach Ben Howland are going to be on hand to answer questions and play the game with members of the media. Seeing as how it would be awkward to invite Love to answer questions about a new Michael Beasley or OJ Mayo cover, we have to assume he is the man.
Seriously, I was kinda hoping they’d have OJ Mayo instead of Love on the front cover. Maybe there would be a wad of cash under the instruction manual, eh?
