The hottest buzz this free agency period in the NBA has been concerned with what Kevin Love was going to do said Ivan Ong. Love had a predictably rocky first season with the Cavaliers and we say predictably because big men always struggle with LeBron James, at least for awhile. We saw that it took Chris Bosh awhile to get acclimated to his new role as the third wheel but he eventually got there. So it surprised us more than a little bit to hear Kevin Love quickly re-commit to Cleveland without even sitting down with other teams.
Aside from all the negatives, Love had many big name franchises begging for his services with blank checks, ready to pay him whatever he wanted. Yet Love stayed solid and refused to back down from his commitment to Cleveland. Love told reporters that he just “wants to help his guys win” and you know what, we believe him. After years losing in Minnesota, Love is smartly picking the winning way this time around.
