If the Cleveland Cavaliers are going to make the Finals within the next few years, they will only do so because they have a truly well-balanced and deep roster.
They don’t just have a couple of superstars in the making, they also have a collection of driven men who work together, pick up the slack, help one another, and play the roles needed.
One of those vital role players is Kevin Love, who has been in the league for 14 years and is still having an impact on the floor.
Kevin Love's career resume:
– 5x All-Star
– 2x All-NBA 2nd Team
– 2016 NBA Champion
– 2011 NBA Most Improved Player
– 2010 NBA RPG (15.2) leader

Throughout his time in the NBA, Love has amassed quite a list of accomplishments.
Love is a five-time All-Star, a two-time All-NBA Second-Team member, an NBA champion from 2016, the 2011 Most Improved Player, and the leader in rebounds for 2010.
Love also was on the 2009 All-Rookie Second-Team too.
Perhaps most impressively, Love holds the record for the most consecutive double-doubles since the NBA merger, with 53.
The Cavs are lucky to have Love and he is showing them why again and again.
During the 2021-22 season, he put up 13.6 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 2.2 assists.
He wasn’t the most productive scorer on the team but he was like the glue that held the offense and defense together at times.
You could see his expertise and knowledge of the game in nearly everything he did.
He is now an elder statesman for the squad and is imparting his wisdom to the young players who populate the roster.
He knows what it takes to make – and win – the Finals and he is teaching the others, who are eager to learn from the legendary Love.
Love is ready to keep winning – and adding to his iconic resume.
