Saturday, iFolloSports.com was on hand as Minnesota Timberwolves All-Star forward Kevin Love provided instruction at a youth basketball camp at Eden Prairie High School, located in the western
Twin Cities suburb of Eden Prairie, Minnesota. This event was part of ProCamps Worldwide, a company that develops and operates sports camps and events around the country, while utilizing some of the top professional athletes from the world of sports.
Above is an iFolloSports.com original photo from the festivities and here are hyperlinks to iFolloSports.com original videos of Love shooting baskets and participating in drills with some of the young campers.
What a thrill it must have been for these kids to play basketball with a two-time NBA All-Star and 2012 Olympic gold medalist.
In addition to all these accolades, Love is simply one of the most popular athletes in the state of Minnesota, at the present time.
This event drew a nice turnout and had a great buzz, with so many people taking pictures and expressing excitement to see Love up close.
It was interesting to have a basketball event at Eden Prairie High School, because it is actually much more known as a football powerhouse. In fact, the school’s football coach and athletic director is Mike Grant, the son of legendary Minnesota Vikings coach and Pro Football Hall of Famer Bud Grant. Mike Grant has led Eden Prairie to six state football championships.
Timberwolves fans hope that the excitement Love has brought to both his team and this event can finally propel the franchise back into the NBA postseason.
