Kevin Love who forms part of the three headed monster in Cleveland, and has helped the Cavaliers to a 47-26 record, doesn’t feel like he’s part of the rock star group in Cleveland. The semi rift became public when Kevin Love was asked by a reporter if the season ended today who would be the MVP of the season. Kevin Love picked his former UCLA Bruin teammate in Russell Westbrook. I would say that’s an excellent choice, but there is just one problem. Kevin Love plays with one of the best players of our generation and the reason he’s even in Cleveland, Lebron James.
Love who did have a reputation of being hard to deal with since his Timber wolf days, is back at it this time with the Cavs and his teammate James. This was said about the situation” Several sources close to the Cleveland Cavaliers claim that James has tried to make it work but that he’s frustrated by Love’s inability, and in some ways unwillingness, to get with the program. Remember, James pushed the Cavs to trade Wiggins to the Timberwolves to acquire Love, who could be one-and-done in Cleveland.”
During the season Lebron sent out a cryptic tweet which read “Stop trying to find a way to FIT-OUT and just FIT-IN. Be a part of something special! Just my thoughts.” Some of his teammates have deemed love aloof and not wanting to be part of the so called “Clique”. This is not something the Cleveland Cavalier brass are wanting to hear, even though there very successful season. The reason mot likely would be because Love can be a free agent at season’s end. So if the Cavaliers don’t win the championship and Love still feels like an outsider, he can bolt. That would leave Cleveland in a pickle losing Love for nothing, while giving Wiggins up for Love just for him to leave the very next year.
Price per head agents have the Cavaliers the favorite to come out of the East. They will have an extremely tough time with whoever they face in the West as a team divided is a team defeated. Even the Miami Heat lost in their first try at winning the Chip and they were more together then this Cavalier team is, and like in Miami he power forward is scapegoat. Let’s see if Kevin Love can handle it a gracefully as Chris Bosh did.
