Jerry Zgoda missed the entire Kevin Garnett era, but he's back covering the Timberwolves after working the beat for their first four seasons two decades ago. In between, he covered a bit of everything: Gopher men's and women's basketball and NCAA athletics, golf, outdoor recreation, sports media and a little Vikings and Twins.

Love added to Beasley's game, talks lockout tonight on Versus network

Kevin Love has been added to the lineup for Michael Beasley's All-Star Game lineup next Friday at Osseo High School.

He also will be a guest talking about the lockout and other things NBA on the NBC SportsTalk show tonight at 5 p.m. on the Versus cable network.

He might be locked out, but he certainly hasn't taken a low profile this off season.

He did all the media rounds to promote his pro beach volleyball appearance in Southern California in August and also now can be found featured on Will Ferrell's Funny or Die web site in a lockout spoof with Tyson Chandler and Shawn Marion.

You can view that here.

Love joins that Oct. 21 exhibition game roster that also includes John Wall, Joakim Noah, DeMarcus Cousins, Derrick Williams, Wes Johnson, Jeff Green, DeAndre Jordan, Greg Monroe and others, perhaps even Kevin Durant.

Beasley tweeted this afternoon that his pal K.D. will "definitely be in building" at Osseo High, but not sure yet if that means he's playing. He's not listed in the lineup yet on www.michaelbeasleyallstarclassic.com yet.

I also see on that site that they've bumped ticket prices as well, to a hefty $60 for general admission, $120 for VIP and $300 for courtside and it says tickets are available at the gym on game night  "cash only."

Not sure people want to see hoops that badly, but we'll see...
