The things Kevin Love has done with his Twitter account over the past several days have been tremendous examples of how Twitter can improve the Olympic experience. Love has been tweeting hilarious picture after hilarious picture. On Thursday, he sent out a great shot of several Team USA players sleeping during their flight in various embarrassing positions. Later that day, he started sharing photos of all the players in their Opening Ceremony outfits. I can’t imagine any of the American athletes will look more awkward than Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony or Anthony Davis.
Don’t worry — Love didn’t just target his teammates. He also shared a picture of himself, albeit with a description that read, “Getting my Justin Timberlake on.”
Team USA’s Opening Ceremony uniforms have already caused a major stir since they were not made in America, but at least the basketball team can provide us with a few laughs by looking ridiculous in them.

That would be No. 1 overall pick Anthony Davis rocking the Burgundy & Gold during USA Basketball’s team sleepover/flight (via BuzzFeed). As Bog notes, this isn’t the first time Davis has worn the hat. But why is he wearing it? Or, who cares? Still, cute pic, guys.
The photographer was Kevin Love, who also just shared Kevin Durant and Carmelo Anthony in berets. Kevin Love is loved.
Carmelo Anthony dismissed the notion that he helped run Jeremy Lin out of New York.

There has been quite the controversy surrounding Team USA and their uniforms. Ralph Lauren and his team designed these threads and…how do we put it? They are pretty much the douchiest outfits we’ve ever seen. Every American athlete will have to rock these uniforms, berets and all, during Friday’s opening ceremonies. It’s great seeing photos popping up of athletes trying...
