Player Spotlight: Kevin Love 🎥
I keep hearing the Cleveland Cavaliers referred to as “LeBron”. You know they have another perennial All-Star on the roster right?
Season Stats: 17.6 ppg, 9.3 rpg, 1.7 apg
Percentages: 45.8 FG%, 41.5 3PT%, 88.0 FT%
1x NBA Champion
5x NBA All-Star
2x All-NBA Second Team
1x NBA Most Improved Player
1x NBA Three-Point Shootout Champion
1x NBA Rebounding Leader
Here’s also his stats the year before he came to Cleveland:
(2013-2014): 26.1 ppg, 12.5 rpg, 4.4 apg
Percentages: 45.7 FG%, 37.6 3PT%, 82.1 FT%
LeBron James is one of the best passers of all-time. And while he does make some teammates better, he also makes some “worse”. The answer is not black & white.
LeBron has made a multitude of players better by spoon feeding them open jumpers. You can not say the same about players like Chris Bosh and Kevin Love.
He’s been strictly turned into a spot-up shooter in a lot of the Cavalier’s offensive sets. His passing ability isn’t able to be showcased as much as it was in Minnesota, especially out of double teams. However, he still is able to make some incredibly impressive outlet passes!
Kevin Love is still Kevin Love, he’s just not utilized the same way anymore. He’s still 29 years old! That’s the downside to playing with an all-time great, there is only one ball to go around.
Do you think Kevin Love is underappreciated on the Cavs?
