Who would you say is the best and worst dresser on Cavs? Love: For worst, I’d say our rookie, Kay Felder. Right now, he’s all sweatsuits. I guess we haven’t had an opportunity to dress up for an event but it’s always easier to blame it on the rook because he gets the donuts, the coffee, etc. For best, I love LeBron’s style coming into games. He’s all business. I think he wore a suit to every game last year but matches as he goes. Sometimes he’ll wear a peaked lapel with no tie and an open collar. Or he’d come in with a sweater. Or he’d go double-breasted or with a three-piece. He had so many different looks throughout the season. I love that he was coming to work wearing a suit. You can never go wrong with that. And I’d have to say myself because I’m biased.
The slightest hint of unhappiness got rumor mills churning and opened up hope for fans of some star-deprived franchises that a former high-scoring double-double machine could be had with the right combination of draft picks and serviceable talent. “It’ll never be gone. It’s just something that you live with. We have so much hype and media, and the good and the bad surrounding this team, and it just comes with the territory,” Love said. “Trade rumors, I don’t know. We lose a couple of games … I don’t know. I’m here, man, and I plan on being here a long time.”
Love is much stronger than a year ago, when he was coming off major shoulder surgery. He couldn’t lift weights last summer. He lost some weight and became more flexible, but lacked upper body strength. Love has not bulked up, but he is visibly stronger. He has been playing more in the post, and scoring more often. Coach Tyronn Lue: “He’s lost some weight, but he looks stronger. We want him to be Kevin, to rebound the ball, do the things he does well.”
Love came into camp with a more sculpted physique than in the past, having spent the summer working out with Cavs training staff members in both Park City, Utah, and Los Angeles. While he was getting his body right for the season, trade rumors persisted. Did he hear them? “Trade rumors, you know, I don’t know,” an apoplectic Love said. “You lose a couple games … No, I don’t know how to answer that. No. I’m here, man. I plan on being here a very long time.”

Storyline: Kevin Love Trade?
But Love, in Cleveland — it works. And yet, the Internet still really wants to see Love traded. “That’s just something that you live with,” Love said. “We have so much hype and media and the good and the bad surrounding this team and it just comes with the territory. So, I love this team, love the coaching staff, my teammates, the organization. I mean, I don’t think it will ever leave but frankly, I don’t really give a s—.”
“This offseason was a lot different for me only because last year, I wasn’t able to even lift a 15, 20-pound dumbbell above my head. “I asked Kevin Willis, ‘How did you stay so long in the league? How did you keep your body the way it was in order to play so many years?’ He said, ‘A lot of it was making sure I did my due-diligence with my body and got all the proper treatments it needed.’ He said in a funny reference, ‘I would eat that iron,’ so he stayed in the weight room and continued to work on his body. From a health standpoint, I feel great. This may be the best I’ve felt coming into a season health-wise.”
