LeBron Welcomes Kevin Love To “The Land” On Twitter, Instagram

Cleveland Cavaliers

Though he never publicly pined for the stranded Minnesota Timberwolves star until the trade to acquire Love was agreed upon in principle, reports of James’ desire to play with his former USA Basketball teammate emerged within a week of The King’s choice to sign in Cleveland. It shouldn’t be surprising, then, that James is excited about the deal for Love finally becoming official. Read More »

Kevin Love, Kyrie Irving

With the return of LeBron James and the imminent arrival of Kevin Love, the Cleveland Cavaliers have championship expectations for next season. In order to reach those heights, they’ll be counting on Kyrie Irving to perform at a high level as well.

Kobe Bryant, Kyrie Irving, Byron Scott

During the 1996 NBA Draft, Kobe Bryant was selected by the Charlotte Hornets with the 13th pick, and promptly traded to the Lakers for center Vlade Divac. At the time, it seemed like a big win for the Hornets, since Divac was one of the better big men in the league and Kobe was coming out of Lower Merion High School in Philadelphia, one of the first guards ever drafted straight out of high school to the NBA. Kobe recently compared Charlotte’s big mistake to the Cavs sending Andrew Wiggins (plus Anthony Bennett and a protected first-round pick) to the Timberwolves for Kevin Love, who — to be fair — is perhaps a shade more talented than Divac was at the time.
