Blast From The Past: Kevin Love’s AAU Highlights

  • Joe Levine

Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love is many things now. An Olympic gold medalist, an NBA All-Star, a double-double machine. But where did it all begin for Kevin Love? Where did Kevin Love really become Kevin Love?

Where so many other future NBA stars become what they were born to be: in AAU ball.

Check out these old-school AAU highlights of Kevin Love, where all of his trademark skills (hitting the boards hard, dead-eye shooting, incredible outlet passing) were born.

Straight killin’ it. As someone who is genuinely a fan of a Love and the T’Wolves, here’s hoping Minnesota is finally able to ride Love, not to mention Ricky Rubio, Andrei Kirilenko, etc., to a playoff appearance this season.
