Kevin Love pulled a fast one earlier this week when he posted an unflattering photo to Twitter of not one, not two, not three, not four, not five, but six of his U.S. basketball teammates (and Coach K!) getting their beauty sleep on a flight to London. The photo made the rounds because how could you not like a photo that, among other things, depicts Chris Paul slobbering all over his pillow?
Now Team USA has exacted its revenge, giving Love a taste of his own medicine by snapping a photo of the Timberwolves forward catching some Zs during a team bus ride. Russell Westbrook, also pictured, evidently couldn't help rubbing it in.
Deron Williams posted the photo to Twitter with the message, "Payback #Gotem." Love replied by tweeting, "Caught me slipping."
It was a long night at the Opening Ceremony, so who can really blame Love for passing out? But apparently he must have thought he could slip by his teammates unnoticed by pulling the ol' sunglasses trick. Either that or he wanted to do his best impression of Westbrook.
