Wednesday, he went on the social isolation edition of Trevor Noah’s “The Daily Show” and talked about how the isolation and loneliness caused by social distancing can be “devastating” at this time for people battling depression and anxiety. “I think continuing to create community at this time, that’s a huge thing… speaking of social isolation, it has made navigating this time very, very different,” Love said. (See his full comments in the video above.)
Is there any scenario, because of the tight calendar and health and safety at the forefront of every decision, where the league could go right into the playoffs, skipping the remaining regular season games? “I would see a situation where, because guys might come in a little out of shape and they don’t know how to get through this time because it is new, they will then have like a two-week training camp, play 10 games and it will go into some sort of a playoff scenario,” Love said. “I don’t know if they will play seven games or a five-game series that we haven’t seen in such a long time and then have The Finals. I think because we have so many of these sports taken away from us that the ratings will be incredibly high. In basketball, it will be anybody’s game, anybody’s championship. As a fan myself, they will be fun to watch.”
Every weekday at 3:00 p.m. EST a member of the NBA family will engage with fans globally, participating in a live interview with NBA broadcast talent or taking questions from fans on Instagram live. Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love will tip off the series beginning today. Additionally, every night the NBA will stream classic games on NBA social platforms including Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Twitch. Tune in tonight at 8:00 p.m. ET to catch the Feb. 27, 2016 Warriors @ Thunder game.
As for trading Love for “peanuts,” that wont happen. The Cavs continue to value him. They don’t regret the contract extension. Plus, they have no urgency to dump salary. The potential restricted free agent market dried up with contract extensions for Buddy Hield, Domantas Sabonis, Jaylen Brown, Dillon Brooks and others this season. The one restricted free agent with appeal is Brandon Ingram. Multiple sources expect the New Orleans Pelicans to match any offer sheet. So, that path, one that changed with the Drummond addition, is no longer available.
