Kevin Love hints at possible LeBron James return to Cavs

After a little crossing of the desert, Kevin Love has regained his feelings and is playing an essential role for the Cavs this season. The Ohio franchise also went through a complicated period following the departure of LeBron James, but has since recovered well, setting up a competitive roster around Darius Garland.

Even six years later, Kevin Love, LeBron James and part of the NBA champion team in 2016 have maintained a strong bond of friendship, fueled today through a visibly lively “group chat”, where all shots are allowed. . Even LeBron James takes it for his rank!

“We are six in this discussion group, especially the veterans who surrounded this team. We like to talk a lot. Not just from the dunk he slammed on my head, but when he was named Worst Actor at the Razzie Awards, for example, we sent him. We thought it was kind of fun to point it out to him.”did he declare. “We don’t cross the line, we know it’s only love. And we have this bond, which we sometimes talk about, which means that we can tell each other everything, whether it’s good or bad news, we can share it on that. This bond can never be broken, not only because of the way we won these Finals, but also for all that we accomplished that season, having so much fun. It’s a very strong bond, and I’m going to see these guys again in June for my wedding”.

Favorable conditions for a return?

While his former teammate is having a particularly complicated collective season with the Lakers, Kevin Love has projected himself into what could be the best end to LeBron James’ career. Inevitably, the prospect of a new return to Cleveland to play one last season with his son Bronny Jr, and within a team where he would not have to be the hero every night, is considered.

“I mean, it would be like finishing a book of great stories for him. I don’t want to project myself into what he may or may not want to do. But you can see the direction our team is taking, which is built to win in the years to come. And when you know how much Cleveland, Akron and all of Ohio loves him, that sure would be great. We bring Bronny here too and we can say that the loop will be closed”he added.

Before finding LeBron James (for his wedding first), Kevin Love also mentioned the “play-in”, a format in which his Cavs could find themselves, and which he learned to appreciate, in particular through the duel between LeBron James’ Lakers and Stephen Curry’s Warriors last season.

“I had my point of view on the question when it was put in place with the belief that the eight best teams must make the playoffs. But I think in terms of interaction for the fans and despite the fact that the teams fight so much during the year, involving the 9th and 10th, it’s not the end of the world. We saw how great these matches could be, I’m thinking in particular of the ultimate match-up between Golden State and the Lakers last year, with Stephen Curry and LeBron James. It was quite incredible (…). It has a similar feel to March Madness, it’s the win or the door.
