With Thompson now with the Celtics, there is now a major lack of depth at the center position for Cleveland. As of today, only Andre Drummond is the only true center on the roster. According to sources, Kevin Love has been putting on weight this offseason to play more center – something he doesn’t typically enjoy. Larry Nance Jr. can also play spot minutes at the five as well but, he and Love are both naturally power forwards so overtaxing them out of position shouldn’t be a regular thing the Cavaliers do.
An injury in 2012 sent Kevin Love into a downward spiral, suffering from depression and anxiety to such a degree that he would not leave his room. He started to research ways to take his life. KEVIN LOVE: “I had a number of ways…the good thing that happens is when you do search that it comes up with the national suicide prevention line. There was a couple ways that I toyed with, but it was just scary to get down that route and think about the idea of, you know, taking my own life.” Love said it was a thought that frequently crossed his mind. And although he has made great strides in his mental health, he still sometimes has those thoughts.

GRAHAM BENSINGER: “Does it ever get to a point anymore where you still have suicidal thoughts?” KEVIN LOVE: “If whoever’s gonna watch this who has had those thoughts before, I think it does cross your mind and I’ve just learned to speak my truth, honestly. “I’ve learned that, you know, nothing haunts us like the things we don’t say. So me keeping that in is actually more harmful.”
When Love was recruited to UCLA, he says he encountered some “wild” things during the process. KEVIN LOVE: …Bags of cash, or, you know, a wardrobe full of clothes, or there’s just so many things that, you know, are scary and wrong… you’re just trying to get to your goal. You put the kid in a really tough place. I think it’s a learning experience, but, you know you take the player, you take that individual away, there’s a lot of greed on every side. I really believe that.
CJ McCollum: Then I began to go to other wineries and check out different places and have tastings. That’s when I realized I was living amongst a gold mine. And, obviously, Kevin Love [basketball player for the Cleveland Cavaliers], he was born here. He was telling me more about Oregon specifically. [Former Trail Blazer] Channing Frye was out here in the summertime. There are a lot of guys who already had a great appreciation for wine. I was just kind of tapping into their knowledge, asking around, checking in with friends.
