Before last night’s nationally televised game against the Clippers, the Cavaliers announced that they’d be resting their three best players. LeBron James, Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving took a seat while L.A. breezed to a predictably easy victory. The NBA was, just as predictably, not pleased.
The Cleveland Cavaliers announced today that forward Kevin Love would miss an estimated six weeks, after undergoing “arthroscopic surgery to remove a loose body from his left knee.”
What do we know? We know Phil Jackson wants to move Carmelo Anthony before this month’s trade deadline. We know player/coach/GM LeBron James wants the Cavs to make a move to get better ahead of another title push. We know the Knicks are big on Kevin Love, even though a Love-for-Melo swap doesn’t really make any sense…
O.J. Mayo received an at-least-two-year ban from the NBA today, for repeat violations of the league’s anti-drug program. This is not exactly important news for the NBA, because O.J. Mayo is busted and terrible and probably was on a plane to China when the decision was made anyway. However, it’s an occasion to remember…
The Warriors knew exactly which matchup they wanted, after Kyrie went Steph in Steph’s face to put the Cavaliers up three with less than a minute to play in last night’s mind-blowing Game 7. They didn’t call a timeout to talk about it. They didn’t give Tyronn Lue a chance to make a substitution. They wanted Kevin Love…
If you’re a basketball fan who has been on the internet this morning, you’ve likely seen a Vine that appears to show Kevin Love attempting to high five LeBron James, and then getting mercilessly left hanging.
First things first: They get no credit for making the Finals. LeBron James could win three playoff series in the East with any four Supreme Court justices as his running mates. Account for that, and what have these bozos contributed to the effort?
This hasn’t exactly been the redemptive trip to the Finals Kevin Love was probably hoping for. After scoring 17 points and grabbing 13 rebounds in the Game 1 loss, Love had the worst night possible in Game 2. He scored five points and corralled three rebounds in 21 minutes, and had to remove himself from the game…
In Kevin Love, the Cavaliers have an incomplete player who is very good at the things he does well, and a liability in the things he doesn’t. Trailing in the fourth quarter, and so perhaps out of desperation, Tyronn Lue and the Cavs switched to a risky gameplan that paid off with a win, and a somewhat counterintuitive…
The Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Boston Celtics 120-103 on Saturday, and one would assume that such a victory would have put everyone in the locker room in a good mood. Maybe it did, but it also put LeBron James and Kyrie Irving in the mood to do some subtweeting.
With last night’s victory against the Indiana Pacers, the Cleveland Cavaliers are 5-1 since David Blatt was fired and Tyronn Lue was named head coach. After the game, Kevin Love punctuated his team’s string of successes with this Instagram post:
The Cleveland Cavaliers screwed the goddamn pooch. They dropped the ball. They shit the bed. They crashed and burned. They were on the ass-end of a trainwreck. They blew it.
In a post on the Players’ Tribune, free-agent forward Kevin Love announced that he will be returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers this season.
The idea of LeBron James signing with a different subpar team every season and dragging them to the Finals would make for an entertaining project, but that probably won’t happen, even though James reportedly decided to decline his player option with the Cavaliers.
Kevin Love will opt out of his contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers and become a free agent this summer, reports ESPN’s Marc Stein.
Kevin Love will miss the rest of the 2015 playoffs after undergoing surgery on his dislocated left shoulder, the Cleveland Cavaliers announced Wednesday night.
The Cavaliers beat the Celtics yesterday to advance to the second round of the playoffs, but their victory came at a heavy cost. The NBA has weighed in on various incidents that occurred during the game, and today meted out punishment.
Well, shit. The Cleveland Cavaliers have just announced that Kevin Love will miss all of the upcoming Eastern Conference semifinals because of the separated shoulder that he suffered during the team’s Game 4 victory over the Boston Celtics this weekend.
