With NBA lockout still in full effect, more NBA players are beginning to seriously entertain European offers.
Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love is one of those players pondering a jump overseas with interest from the Turkish team that Deron Williams plays on.
“I’ve been going back and forth with Deron on it,” Love told Yahoo! Sports’ Marc Spears on Friday. “I’ll be making my decision in the next couple of days.”
What happened to the volleyball career that Love was pursuing over the summer? We were hoping for a better ending than a one-and-done in the professional ranks and hoping to observe Love’s own personal ‘Green Flash’ in the sand.
From the rottentomatoes.com profile of Beach Kings starring former Baywatch actor David Charvet and reality TV star Kristin Cavallari:
Cameron Day (David Charvet) was a college basketball player whose proficiency on the court came at the sacrifice of his sanity.
Now that Cameron has learned how to effectively harness his inner anger, the time has come for him to have another go at greatness — only not on the basketball court but on the pro beach volleyball circuit.
Mia helps to enlighten Cameron by teaching him about the Green Flash: that fleeting moment when the sun falls over the horizon and all of nature become completely brilliant for a fraction of a second. Despite his early success, Cameron feels as is he has not experienced his own personal Green Flash just yet, though now as he makes it his mission to win the Manhattan Beach Open, he senses that true greatness could finally be within reach.
Love and his volleyball partner, Hans Stolfus, lost in Love’s debut at the Manhattan Beach Open in August in straight sets, 21-16, 21-15. The top-seeded team of Sean Scott and John Hyden were said to have taken it easy on Love and Stolfus.
Looks like Love’s volleyball career was a ‘Green Flash’ in the plan. Cooked.
