It seems like you guys have also developed a strong bond in the six plus months that you have been there. You guys are always posting up those Instagram photos after games. How is the camaraderie there? How is everything going for you? Kevin Love: The camaraderie has been great. This team is very close. We have a mix of guys, you know? Guys like who are in their second year like Delly (Matthew Dellavedova). Joe Harris is in his first year, he’s our rook which always makes it fun to have him do the different duties. Then we have guys like Brendan Haywood, James Jones, Mike Miller and Shawn Marion, that are all the way up into their fifteenth or sixteenth season.
It’s not likely that owners would go after the max-salaried guys. But the game’s stars have long been frustrated by what they believe is an artificial limitation placed on what they can earn, especially compared to players in baseball that make tens of millions more. That will be one of the issues about which James has to get up to speed. “It takes about a year,” Jones said. “You really have to go to the summer meetings to get a full grasp of what the union is about, and then have some time to look at the CBA, look at the issues, look at the areas for improvement and look beyond those things. Because as we see with this new CBA, every deadline, every two months something unfolds that is an unintended consequence of this deal being struck.”
“He’s happy,” said Jones, who’s now in his fifth season as James’ teammate. “People are always looking and prodding, hoping they can glean something from his body language or asking other sources how he feels, but if you ask him directly he’ll tell you he’s happy. He’s enjoying his time here in Cleveland. He’s focused on getting himself healthy and building a contender.”
