Default Why does Kevin get no LOVE?

I know Lebron has been his usual freakish self but how come no one is giving props to this guy is averaging 20 its, 10 rebs, almost 25 PER, hitting 40% from the 3pt area, unclogging those driving lanes for teammates etc.
If the team loses, he gets the blame but right now, they are winning without Kyrie...
If he bec he's unathletic and his brand of play is unspectacular?
Is it bec Lebron haters also hate him?
Is it bec Lebron fans like to minimize his worth to glorify Lebron?
Isn't he now the best White guy in the league?

I'd say there are a few reasons.

1) Consecutive Finals no shows against GS. Not gonna get respect if you can't perform on the biggest stage against the best team.
2) He's really bad defensively, he's unathletic and he's white. All of this, whether fair or not, make people think he's 'soft'.

A mix of racism and his embarrassing lack of rim protection. The Cavs without Love would be a 6 or lower seed in the East.

Teammates of you know who are minimized to elevate you know who.

The media perpetuates it and the sheep follow.

I even see you know who icing Love out of the game at times to make sure he isn't too spectacular.

Everyone knows the real truth, its because he's LeBrons teammate, no teammate of LeBron gets credit.

Because he's irrelevant and uninteresting.

It's like asking why Tim Duncan had much much less love than Kobe or Iverson. He's just rather dull to talk about.

Cavs fans, who watch the team nightly, give Love a ton of credit.

A lot of time Kevin was playing out of his position and do the dirty work or at least try, he never be DPOY - but still he contribute and I think CAVs fan appreciate lot he does for the team. He is in similar situation as was Bosh in Lebron's Heat period.

Anyway - he makes his presence felt with his rebounding under the basket and he got some offensive moves also. This season he is having his best numbers - shooting with career high efficiency 0.563 (big improvement compared to previous seasons) and havind solid 30 minutes with 20/10.

Bolder above is the correct answer. This is why Kyrie left

Lebron wouldn't stop passing it to him on Christmas day.

First finals he had shoulder injury so of course no "show".
2nd stint, yes a trashy performance but game 7 he had a game high +19, 14 rebs, 2 steals in 30 minutes contributing to a huge upset win.
Last finals averaged 16 pts, 11 rebs, 38% from the 3pt area, 2.2 steals and 1 block so I don't think you can consider that mediocre.
