It’s kind of sad, really.
The Cleveland Cavaliers and Kevin Love are working on a contract buyout. This would allow him to sign with another team.
Everyone remembers, “The Stop” in the 2016 NBA Finals where K Love was able to keep Stephen Curry from scoring in the crucial final moments of the game. That was one of the biggest reasons why the Cavs won the affair.
Love started his career with the Minnesota Timberwolves back in 2008. Love became a Cleveland Cavalier in the 2014 season and has played with the Wine and Gold ever since (nine seasons).
In his career, Love averaged 17.2 points, 10.5 rebounds and 2.3 assists. He shot 43.9% from the floor (37.2% from deep) and 83% from the line.
This current season, Love played very little and has spent the games on the bench. Heach coach JB Bickerstaff has felt that Love hasn’t fit in the scheme of things and thus this is why said buyout is happening.
It appears the Miami Heat are likely suitors for Kevin Love. It’s kind of crazy if you think about it.
A true full circle.
LeBron James started in Cleveland, left for Miami and came back to Cleveland. Now Kevin Love came to Cleveland and is leaving for Miami himself.
Truly, these past years Kevin Love has served as not only a superstar player but also a role model here in Cleveland as a member of the Cavaliers.
Love will certainly be missed when this buyout becomes official and a team actually chooses to sign the man.
Finally, it does represent the Cavs turning the page for a franchise that is on the up and up. Currently, the team is 4th in the Eastern Conference standings at 38-23. They are five games back of the first-place Boston Celtics.
Kevin Love, thank you. From all of us here in Cleveland if you truly do end up getting bought out and signed by another team. We wish you the best of luck.
That is unless you and said team plays our Cavaliers in a playoff series of some type. Then, well we want you to suck, bro. Haha. Much…wait for it. Much love <3
What a career from a player that will go down in history as an elite power forward. Certainly, a hall of famer. That’ll be for sure when the time comes.
THE STOP – it’ll never be forgotten, Mr. Love. Once again, thank you and best of luck to you in the future.
