In the Uncle Drew sequel, the “old baller” pays a visit to his pal Bill Russell who convinces him to put his old team back together again. He immediately recruits his old big man partner Wes and the two players hop in Drew’s Cadillac Eldorado for a pick-up game at Jim Gilliam Park in Crenshaw. Shortly after that, lessons were taught to the youngins.
Can the Timberwolves keep pace in the west without Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio? Well we are about to find out., cause today during a practice Love broke his right hand and will miss the next six to eight weeks. Wow.

Way back in December of 2000 when hip-hop was still alive. Chandler’s high school (Dominguez) headed north to Portland for the Les Schwab Invitational and tournament organizers selected a group of local kids to serve as ball boys during the five-day, 16-team tournament. They drew out of a hat to determine the team they’d be assigned to for the week. Love, then a 6-foot-1 sixth grader, drew Dominguez.
“I followed Tyson around the whole week,” says Love. “I was this suburban, pudgy white kid thinking one day I could be as good as him.”
Nine years later before Timberwolves rookie Love played against Chandler’s Hornets for the first time. Love walked up to Chandler and asked, “Remember me?” Fast forward to today and the two are now teammates on Team USA one win away from a gold medal. Crazy.
