Timberwolves forward Kevin Love already has made two NBA All-Star Games before his 24th birthday.

Now he will play in his first -- and possibly only -- Olympic Games at the age of 23.

As expected, Love on Saturday was chosen to the 12-man U.S. team that will play in London later this month.

It could be his first and last Olympic experience if the Games allow only players 23 years old and younger to play in 2016, a concept that NBA Commissioner David Stern supports and one that is being discussed.

"It's going to be a very special time," Love said on an NBA TV telecast on which the roster was announced. "It could be the last time for guys to play at this age."

If it is, it's the last time you will see LeBron James perhaps playing some point guard and Kevin Durant or Carmelo Anthony spotted at power forward. The Team USA roster is deep and versatile despite missing NBA superstars such as the injured Dwight Howard, Derrick Rose, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.

The final 12-man roster still has James, Durant, Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant, Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook, the Los Angeles Clippers' Chris Paul and Brooklyn's Deron Williams on it.

It also, of course, has Love, who isn't an NBA center in height or nature, but he will play one in London.
