Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love joked on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday night that he wasn’t worried about making the men’s basketball team for this summer’s London Olympics.

He said he wasn’t sure if he would even need to try out.

“I don’t know if I have to because they always need at least one token white guy,” Love said. “So I think that I have a pretty good shot of making it.”

Love also talked about a famous Twitter incident from his rookie season. Love broke the news that Minnesota coach Kevin McHale was stepping down.
