Kevin Love and Klay Thompson played Little League together

Kevin Love Klay Thompson

Can you imagine what it’s like to have played Little League baseball on the same team as Kevin Love and Klay Thompson and then see them facing each other in the NBA Finals two years in a row? There are actually several people we could probably talk to about that.

Love talked about the coincidence during last year’s NBA Finals:

And what happened when they faced each other in baseball?

Oh, and in case you can’t figure it out, that giant in the back row is Love, while Klay is in the front left. While basketball became the sport for each of them, it’s worth noting that Love can still hit monstrous home runs, and Thompson’s brother, Trayce, plays for the Dodgers.
