Cleveland Cavaliers power forward Kevin Love has seen a smaller role since being traded from the Minnesota Timberwolves due to playing with small forward LeBron James and point guard Kyrie Irving.

The Cavaliers are currently the second seed in the Eastern Conference and looking like favorites to win the 2015 NBA Finals, but Love may not be around much longer if his latest comments mean anything.
When asked about his relationship with LeBron, Love replied that they are “not best friends.” He elaborated that they see each other every day at practices and games but don’t hang out.
While this is not necessarily an indication that Love dislikes LeBron, it may be a sign that he wants to leave Cleveland after the 2015 season.
However, Love has said that he intends to remain in Cleveland beyond this season. This is even more likely if the Cavaliers can win an NBA title for the first time in franchise history.
Love is also not set to become a free agent until 2016 even though he can opt out of his current contract.
NBC Sports reported on Love’s comments on Twitter.
