Kevin Love was all set to participate in the All Star Game festivities at Target Field.  When the celebrity softball game roster was first announced, Love had committed to play. However, he has now withdrawn his name from the roster, citing a conflict.

I'm betting the conflict is that Kevin Love no longer wants to be a part of the Timberwolves and he may be a bit wary of the reception he would receive All Star Weekend.

While he is out, other Minnesota professional athletes are expected to play like Adrian Peterson and Zach Parise.  The softball game is scheduled for Sunday, July 13.
