Kevin Love 'doesn't give a s—' about trade rumors

NBA null


Kevin Love is constantly surrounded by trade rumors that say his exit from Cleveland is imminent.

However, the Cavaliers big man loves being in Cleveland and doesn't plan on leaving anytime soon.

"That's just something that you live with," Love said of the trade rumors, via "We have so much hype and media and the good and the bad surrounding this team and it just comes with the territory. So, I love this team, love the coaching staff, my teammates, the organization. I mean, I don't think it will ever leave but frankly, I don't really give a s—."

The rumors come hand-in-hand with the notion that Love doesn't "fit" into the Cavaliers' playing scheme. His first trip to the playoffs with Cleveland in 2015 ended in a dislocated shoulder, and his role on the team wasn't as significant as many had envisioned.

However, Love shushed those critics in the 2016 playoffs, when he helped the Cavaliers win their first NBA championship.

"Y'all keep asking the same question. It's (about) sacrifice," Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said on why Love is a good fit. "When you have three great players, everybody is not going to have the ball and have the same numbers they had on other teams."
