Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past week, you’ve probably heard three-time NBA All-Star Kevin Love is planning on opting out of his contract in Minnesota next summer. It’s no surprise the 25-year old superstar now seeks greener pastures after his club has failed to reach the postseason in all of his six seasons.

In less than an hour, the Brooklyn Nets will tip off in Miami against the 2-time defending champion Heat. For Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett it’ll be a chance to exact some revenge on LeBron James and his teammates for eliminating their Celtics in 2011 and 2012.
