After being bought out by the Cleveland Cavaliers this season, the Miami Heat veteran forward Kevin Love has embraced a smaller role with the Heat, accepting that he is now a role player.

“I didn’t come here to shoot 15 shots a game or ask for more,” Love said. “I just wanted to be able to make my impact, make my stamp on the game. Sometimes it’s not going to show up in the stat sheet; sometimes it is, but you’re affecting winning. That’s kind of where I’m at in my career right now.”
