LeBron James Says Kevin Love Needs To “Demand” The Ball On Block

Kevin Love, LeBron James

Ask and you might receive; demand and you shall. Apparently that’s LeBron James’ line of thinking when it comes to Kevin Love wanting more touches on the block. In wake of the former Minnesota Timberwolves go-to scorer admitting that he’s still “trying to find” himself in the Cleveland Cavaliers’ offense, The King said if Love “demands” the ball then he’ll get it down low.

Kevin Love On Role With Cavs: “I’m Just Trying To Find Myself In This Offense”

Kevin Love, LeBron James

Lost in the Cleveland Cavaliers’ overall mediocrity to open the season have been Kevin Love’s struggles. The former Minnesota Timberwolves go-to guy knew he’d face an adjustment playing with LeBron James and Kyrie Irving, but surely didn’t think it would be so daunting. Love is shooting below 39 percent from the field over the Cavs’ first 10 games, and has the lowest true shooting percentage (54.9) and PER (17.55) since his rookie year. He reached a nadir in last night’s loss to the San Antonio Spurs, too, scoring a season-low 10 points on 12 shots. Read More »

GIF: Kevin Love Channels Inner-Quarterback On Perfect Outlet To LeBron

Kevin Love

What Kevin Love sees on this play is akin to what a quarterback does with a receiver running a “go” route against Cover 2, right? Forgive us – we’re basketball people. Watch Love use the best arm in Cleveland to launch another perfect outlet pass to a streaking LeBron James for a layup. Read More »

The Cavaliers Set An NBA Record For Three-Pointers Last Night (Video)

LeBron James

The Cavs hit nine in a row to start their game against visiting Atlanta last night. They ended up hitting 11 in a row and 13-for-17 in the first half of their 127-94 cakewalk at home. LeBron James had three of them, Kevin Love and Joe Harris had two apiece with Shawn Marion and Dion Waiter each hitting one. They’re the first team in NBA history to go 9 for 9 or better from deep in a quarter, according to Elias Sports Bureau. Read More »

Kevin Love Denies That Silly Lakers Rumor & The “Joint” Handshake With Kyrie Irving

Kevin Love, Jrue Holiday

Since the Cavs had almost a full work week off following their win over the Pellies on Monday night, rumors have run rampant about Kevin Love. First there was that Lakers tidbit buttressed by barely a kernel of evidence in Sam Smith’s heavily maligned piece, then Love and Kyrie Irving performed a Rasta handshake after the win on Monday, which Cleveland brass explained in a pretty lame way. Love somehow combined the two similarly idiotic stories when recently asked about the Lakers rumor. Read More »

Cavs Laughably Say Irving-Love “Spliff” DAP Was “Sharpening…Mustache”

Kevin Love, Kyrie Irving

At the conclusion of Cleveland’s 118-110 victory over the Pelicans on Monday, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love engaged in a complicated victory handshake that appeared to end with an homage to toking on a spliff. The Cavs have issued a statement on the cannabinoid *high*-five, and it’s as ridiculous as you’d think. Read More »

The best part of sporting success? Being able to bust out sick new handshakes, of course! Or at least that’s how Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving seem to feel. After the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the New Orleans Pelicans 118-111 on Monday night for their first home victory, the twentysomething superstars celebrated with some carefully orchestrated patty cake – that ended with the motion of smoking…something.

Report: Kevin Love Will “Seriously Consider” Opting Out This Summer

Kevin Love

Both Kevin Love and LeBron James have the ability to opt out of their current deals with the Cavs next summer and re-sign with them or head elsewhere. Aside from Stephen A. Smith‘s hallucinatory waking dream, James isn’t going anywhere, but Love might be amendable to a second move in as many years — depending on how this year plays out. As Sam Smith at Bulls.com reports, Love could have his eyes set on Hollywood. Read More »

Official Nuggets Twitter Trolls LeBron & Cavs

Kevin Love, LeBron James

The Cavs face the Nuggets tonight, after dropping three of their first four to open a 2014-15 NBA season with title hopes. LeBron James has looked off his game, and Kyrie Irving has already clashed with James about the way he runs the offense. Kevin Love has complained about getting more touches in the paint and first-time NBA coach David Blatt looks overwhelmed with his rotations. On top of all that drama — whether real, or exaggerated — the Nuggets official Twitter account decided to have a little fun at the expense of the presupposed Cleveland Big Three in their buildup before tonight’s contest.

LeBron James Says He “Won’t Allow” Star-Studded Cavaliers To Be Selfish

Kevin Love, LeBron James

It’s only two games, but the star-studded Cleveland Cavaliers have hardly been the free-wheeling, ball-sharing offensive juggernaut that so many predicted early in the 2014-2015 season. LeBron James and company have managed merely average offense thus far; their 103.4 offensive rating ranks 14th in the league. Half of that mediocrity, of course, is due to the season-opening outlier in which the four-time MVP played one of the worst games of his career and Cleveland scored just 90 points. But even the Cavs’ 114-108 overtime win over the defensive-oriented Chicago Bulls on Halloween didn’t spell offensive harmony. Read More »
