Game 723 | October 21, 2008 | Kevin Love, Fred Hoiberg
Rated by the Timberwolves as the top big man in the 2008 draft, Love came to the team, along with guard Mike Miller, in a draft-night trade for O.J. Mayo. The 19-year-old Love, who played one season at UCLA, is the nephew of Mike Love, one of the founding members of The Beach Boys. Hoiberg, whose NBA playing career ended after successful heart surgery, said he stays in touch with Gopher linebacker recruit Sam Maresh, who also had heart surgery by the same Mayo Clinic physician.
