Kevin Love Says Cavs Need to “Look at Themselves in the Mirror,” Starting With LeBron (Video)
If you had to pick a single member of the Cleveland Cavaliers who was the absolute worst during Monday night’s 132-98 loss to the Golden State Warriors, chances are you’d be more likely to pick Kevin Love than LeBron James.
LeBron James played 33 minutes, was 7-for-16 from the field and 2-for-2 from the free-throw line, with 16 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists, one steal, one block, and 3 turnovers.
Kevin Love, on the other hand, was 1-for-5 from the field with zero free-throw attempts in 21 minutes. He finished with 3 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists, one block, and one turnover.

After taking all of that into consideration, I think it’s fair to suggest that Love was worse than LeBron on this night. It would also be more than fair to suggest that LeBron has been much(!) better than Love throughout the course of the season. Heck, you could probably even claim that Love was the worst of all the Cavs players on Monday night.
But that didn’t stop Cleveland’s power forward from telling reporters that every Cavs player needs to look at themselves in the mirror, and “it all starts with our leader over there”…
By “leader over there,” he was obviously referring to LeBron.
Was it a shot at King James? It sure sounded like it. You can watch Love’s comment at the 2:15 mark of the video below. You be the judge:
