LOVE ON JAMES: WE’RE NOT BEST FRIENDS.
Cleveland Cavaliers’ Kevin Love will be making a choice this summer as he will be an unrestricted free agent but as you will read on, maybe some media outlets are trying to do some digging..
The end of the season, whenever it comes for Cleveland, will bring about another big question for Love, who can opt out of his contract to test free agency. He will be in a position to assess everything — his role with the Cavs, his connection to the city of Cleveland, his relationship with the players and coaches — in making his decision about his future.
In an interview with “The Dan Patrick Show” on Monday, Love said, “I plan on being a Cavalier either way,” when asked if Cleveland’s postseason showing will factor in his decision-making process. Also in that interview, Love said he would vote for former UCLA teammate Russell Westbrook for MVP over LeBron James.
Perhaps the most important relationship Love will consider will be that of him and James, who is unequivocally the most important person in the Cavs franchise.
“It’s fine,” Love told “Mike & Mike” of his relationship with James. “You know, we’re not best friends, we’re not hanging out every day, but we see each other every day, whether at the practice facility, whether on the road or going to a game. I think our relationship is also evolving. I can say the same with each and every coach, Coach Blatt and each and every player on the team. But that’s part of the NBA.”
LOVE VOTES WESTBROOK AS MVP OVER JAMES AND IRVING
But the two main people in contention are Westbrook and James Harden.
Love added that Russell Westbrook is his personal MVP over LeBron James.
“They’re both having an MVP-type season, but I’m going to go with Russell Westbrook because he’s, every single night you’re looking at his stat sheet, they’re fighting for a playoff spot, with Serge Ibaka going down now, Kevin Durant potentially being out the rest of the year and him still going out there and fighting for his team, and winning, and fighting for that seventh or eighth spot in the playoffs,” Love said. “I think Russ is arguably having the better season.”
