Kevin Love Says He and LeBron Aren’t BFF’s But Relationship Is “Evolving”


As the Cleveland Cavaliers have started to gel as we head toward the end of the season, there’s still one small area of concern. How do the Cavs and head coach David Blatt plan to use Kevin Love.

Love came to the Cavs in a blockbuster trade last summer. The expectation was that Love would slide into that “Chris Bosh” third guy role. So far it hasn’t quite come together. Love has been MIA in LeBon’s post-game team pics. We know LeBron is a big camaraderie guy. So naturally there have been questions about Love’s relationship with LeBron.

This morning he was a guest on ESPN’s “Mike & Mike” where he elaborated on his relationship with LeBron. Love said they aren’t hanging out, but they see each other in practice, and that the relationship is evolving, similar to Blatt’s relationship with the team, and other teammates.

“We’re not best friends, we’re not hanging out everyday…I think our relationship is evolving.” – Kevin Love on his relationship w/ LeBron

Does this spell trouble for “The Land?” Personally, I can’t see Love returning next season for basketball reasons. They still haven’t found away to fit him into the offense.
