Kevin Love wonders if LeBron will have a ‘storybook ending’ in Cleveland
Kevin Love plays for a resurgent Cavaliers as LeBron and the Lakers drop out of the playoffs. Could LeBron return to Cleveland?
The 2016 Cleveland Cavaliers who shocked the Golden State Warriors still stay in touch. Often.
“100%, there are six of us there.” Kevin Love told FanSided. “It’s pretty much like the super veteran big guys that were on this team. We definitely have a great text string that we had and love.
The team that broke Cleveland’s 52-year championship drought — coming back from 3-1 in the NBA Finals to do so — will be forever remembered. So what about an encore performance? It sounds a bit crazy, but could the Cavs at least partially come together for one more year of glory before LeBron James retires in the next few years?
After all, the Lakers are…bad and, in all likelihood, will miss the playoffs and playoffs entirely. James is…still very good in a close battle with Joel Embiid and Giannis Antetokounmpo to lead the league for the first time since 2008. Remarkable.
James started his career with the Cavs, won his signature title with the Cavs and enjoys playing on winning basketball teams like Cleveland right now – still a playoff team despite suffering numerous key injuries throughout his career. the season.
Wouldn’t it make more sense for James to end his career where he started?
Would the Cleveland Cavaliers welcome LeBron James back?
“I mean, it’s like a storybook ending for him,” Love said. “I don’t want to project what he may or may not want to do, but where our team is trending and how we’re set to win for a very long time and how much you know, Cleveland and Akron and all of Ohio love him. It would be nice to get Bronny here too and then we’ll stop this.
Storybook indeed, entirely possible with Bronny and his dad playing together as the icing on the sundae.
James will be a free agent after next season. The Lakers’ upcoming offseason will be interesting. Anthony Davis could be traded. Russell Westbrook is going nowhere with a $47 million player option. The Lakers are unlikely to change that next year, which could push James out of Los Angeles yet again.
Meanwhile, the Cavs will have the expiring contacts of Love, Caris Levert, Darius Garland and Collin Sexton. The money will be there to do it. Love could renege on a team-friendly deal.
Bronny can’t make the draft until 2024. How about a two-year contract for James to play the last year of his career with his son at home in 2024. Who says no?
For now, there is the text channel to discuss future plans and bad movie performances included.
“When he got the Worst Actor Razzie, we told him we thought it was pretty funny,” Love said. “But now he takes it all in stride. There is nothing forbidden. And we have a bond that will never be broken, especially in how we not only won this series, but also how we functioned throughout the season, having so much fun, that bond will never be broken. I’m going to see these guys. You know, in June for my wedding.
Love will marry his longtime girlfriend, supermodel Kate Bock, this summer with James and company in attendance.
Maybe there will be a conversation about a wedding and a basketball reunion in Cleveland, Ohio in 2023.
