Kevin Love had the best ranked DRTG, and the most steals + blocks out of any player on the cavs last year in the Finals... the facts really hurt your narrative. It was actually Lebron giving KD a red carpet that was why Cleveland couldnt stop the Warriors.

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?
dumb

He gave a red carpet to everyone. The entire team shot 2/3rds on the dude in the first few games. It was one of the worst defensive displays by a superstar, but people don't mention it because it's Lebron. If it was Curry or KD, ESPN would have weekly articles on how their insufficient defense is holding the team back.

Love was absolute garbage in 2016 though, one of the worst displays by a star in some time.

Most NBA players get fatter throughout their career as opposed to Love who was heavier as a rookie.

People LOVE fat NBA players because it is pretty unusual.
