Kevin Love’s Frustrations with Cavaliers Reaches a Boiling Point

The Cleveland Cavaliers are very much in the early stages of their rebuild.

Sitting in the Eastern Conference basement only a few years after championship glory, the Cavaliers are boasting a putrid 10-26 mark. It’s been yet another trying season in Ohio and now some of the veterans are getting antsy and visibly upset by their team’s poor play and the front office’s inability to fix the problem.

Things reached a boiling point earlier in the week when Kevin Love was involved in a verbal altercation with general manager Koby Altman. At one point, the former All-Star power forward reportedly dared the Cavaliers GM to fine him, claiming that he’s already rich and a financial penalty wouldn’t affect him in the slightest.

The drama and anger persisted during the Cavaliers 121-106 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder, when a frustrated Love took exception to a certain play call late in the second quarter.

“We were making a playcall. We were in the bonus, and Chris Paul was on me, so I felt swing it to me and try to throw it in the post, see if they double-team and get a good shot out of that. That’s not what we did, and yeah, I was frustrated,” said Love in a post-game media scrum when asked about the sequence.

Rookie head coach John Beilein took responsibility for the play call following the loss.

“If I do it, if anyone does it, it really doesn’t make you a better player or a better coach at that time,” said Beilein. “It’s like carrying a suitcase around with you, that you have extra baggage. We don’t need to do that.”

The Cavaliers opted to sit Love on the second night of a back-to-back as they continue to search for a trade partner for the 31-year old forward.
