Sixteen years ago, LeBron James jumped to the NBA straight out of high school, forever altering the sport. On the eve of the 2019 NBA draft, Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love, a former teammate of James, said today’s players should be allowed to make that same leap—and he expects the NBA will soon let them. “That’s a choice that players should have,” says Love. “I think it’s going to be within the next three to five years.”
Storyline: One-and-done Rule
I ran into Channing Frye in Toronto. He was there doing some work for ESPN ahead of Game 5 of the Finals. Upon his retirement from the Cavs in April, he’s moved back to Oregon. I reminded him that he was approached by the Raptors to sign as a free agent last summer, and that he instead chose to sign a one-year deal with the Cavs. His reasons for picking the Cavs were the familiarity with the organization, the presence of one of his closest friends on the roster (Kevin Love), and the message from Cleveland’s front office that the team was going to try to make the playoffs. Six games into it, Lue was fired, Love was headed for toe surgery and a 50-game absence, and the Cavs were destined for the lottery. Frye won a title with the Cavs in 2016 and went to the Finals with Cleveland again in 2017. He could’ve added another Finals trip, and maybe a second championship, had he said yes to the Raptors. Such is life.
