The Cleveland Cavaliers won their first and so far only NBA championship in 2016. The team that had LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love on the roster won 57 regular season games which was good enough for the first place in the Eastern Conference.
According to Love, the 2016 Cavs team was the most talented underachieving regular season team because they did not care until the playoffs.
Love talked about the 2015-2016 season with a former teammate Channing Frye on Bleacher Report’s “Full-Bodied” podcast.
“We didn’t realize exactly what we had,” said the veteran Love. “What we had was so special … We were the most talented, underachieving regular season team of all-time. Without question. We didn’t care until the playoffs.
“We were ‘Days Of Our Lives,’” Love added. “We had so many storylines. We thrived under chaos. But when it came time, we had fun. We had the best times … Best years of my life.”
