Cleveland.com- When it came to James, who recruited Love to agree to a trade to Cleveland last summer but has publicly jabbed him since they became teammates, Love told Mike & Mike that his relationship James is "fine."
"You know, we're not best friends, we're not hanging out every day, but we see each other every day, whether we're at the practice facility, whether we're on the road or going to a game," Love said. "I think our relationship is also evolving. I could say the same with each and every coach, coach Blatt, and each and every player on the team. But, that's part of the NBA."
Oh, it's fine, huh? Yeah, I've heard that before. Every male that endured any semblance of a relationship with a female has heard that one before. Kevin Love's relationship with LeBron James is fine in the same way that it's fine when you leave the toilet seat up. It's fine in the same way it's fine when you get caught looking at your ex's Facebook page. It's fine in the same way that it's fine when you come home late without calling smelling like a brewery. My last "fine" relationship was over before I even finished saying the word. Fine never means fine when discussing relationships Kevin. You're better than that. You talk to the media on a daily basis, can I get a better word choice?
I straight up giggled at "our relationship is also evolving". That's not how relationships work Kev. They start out euphoric. You are still supposed to be in the honeymoon phase, not growing to like each other. This isn't a romantic comedy. You guys are still supposed to be ass patting and thigh slapping. If your relationship is even a "relationship" at all LeBron is supposed to tagging you in instagram posts on a bi-weekly basis. You are supposed to be the 'man crush monday', not the 'forgot about that fool friday'.
Kevin Love said "we're not best friends, but we see each other every other day" like that's not a requirement. How often would you guys hang out if you weren't contractually obligated to do so? if I know anything about successful relationships I know that there isn't supposed to be an unparalleled amount of resentment within the first 6 months. I don't think anyone resents anyone more than Kevin Love resents LeBron James. The guy basically risked his career and his reputation as one of the leagues best power forwards to be demoted to a taller, better looking version of Mike Miller.
There are a lot of people that stay in bad relationships because they are too cowardly to break it off. Generally those people require a better reason than "it's just not working". I am pretty sure Kevin Love's impending free agency counts as a better reason. He can spare me with the politically correct answers, there is no way Kevin Love is going to be a Cleveland Cavalier next year. This partnership is not fine, no matter how well the Cavs are playing.
