There was plenty of NBA talent in the Target Center on Saturday afternoon, but the only current Minnesota Timberwolf in attendance was on the sideline calling the game. Mark Madsen
, DraftExpress.com and several thousand other area hoop fans got the chance to watch a number of the best high school prospects in the country at the 2007 Gatorade Timberwolves Shootout. Several of the top teams in the country were in town to take on the best the host state had to offer. On display were the basketball born and raised Larry Drew
Jr. (son of former NBA standout Larry Drew
Sr.), Jrue Holiday
(brother, Justin, headed to Washington next fall), and Kevin Love
(son of former Laker Stan Love
). While Wisconsin-bound point guard Jordan Taylor stole the show from Drew, Holiday and Love put on a show that those in attendance won?t be forgetting about anytime soon.
