The Lakers have always been the front-runner to land Kevin Love if he bolts Cleveland. He has ties in Los Angeles and went to college there. However, Los Angeles is not the only team looking to get its foot in the door with Love.
The Boston Celtics are still awaiting word on whether they'll get a meeting with Cleveland free agent Kevin Love, league source tells Yahoo.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) July 1, 2015
Love is a perennial All-Star and one of the elite offensive power forwards in the game, able to score inside and drain the three. Plus he is a beast on the boards and the best outlet passer in the game. He would fit in anywhere.
Like a guy flirting at a bar with a pretty woman, this doesn’t mean it’s going anywhere. Love and the Lakers (and maybe others) are just talking.
But Love said he was committed to the Cavaliers. This flirtation could be the first step to something more.
