My guess is he pulled himself out because he kept pushing JB to play him and see how he held up, it didnt work out


That might be it but I wont say its overly detrimental. Nance has really really looked good this year. With him shooting 3s at the rate he is, hes almost became a more impactful player than Love is already because of his athleticism and defense that Love doesnt have.

I wish the best for Love, I just also hope that when he does get healthy they look at reducing his mins to get Nance more floortime. It would be best for the team and it would also allow Love to play less mins and hopefully stay in better health.

I think I would put a cap on Loves mins at 30


With all the back to backs, there was going to be lots of minutes for Nance and others regardless of Kevin's health. And if the NBA is actually requiring teams to come up with excuses for sitting players this year (although you'd think they'd make an exception because of the circumstances) there are going to be more fictitious injuries than real ones this season.


Welp there it is. Love is out 3-4 weeks with a calf strain. Like clockwork

weird how that worked out. Maybe there is a trade in the works after all as I am not convinced that wasn't slightly underhanded given he pulled himself out without appearing to get injured. But it's probably just the usual KLove struggle to stay healthy hopefully it's somewhat of a exaggerated report.
There are no valid legal arguments that people have any right to not wear masks in public at this point. Being asymptomatic or unaware if you are positive, does not make you exempt from any obligations to ensure society is free from your germs.

Remember the whole 'the best ability is availability' thing? Yeah......

Saw on Twitter a lot of beat reporting folks saying that the Cavs/76ers should be doing a Love for Tobias Harris swap. Both on horrible contracts but Love could help the 76ers more than Harris fits with them and Harris would fit the Cavs better because of his mobility.

I cant see the cavs taking on an extra year of a similar impact player that is more expensive not to mention the TB.
Only a pro PHI minded beat reporter would suggest it.
