Sexton insisted his relationship with Love is good despite such public moments. “It’s been good, especially like when it’s tough times or even good times, I know I can go to him anytime throughout the game. He knows if I’m like ‘OK, we need you to knock it down,’ he knows I’m just trying to uplift him,” Sexton said. “He comes to me, he’ll be like ‘Make a shot, what are you doing?’ He’ll say that and just pretty much eases me up and just pretty much relaxes me. Sometimes if you’re missing or are having a tough game, then you need someone just to ease your mind and focus your attention somewhere else.
When Love, 32, signed that extension, he was told by the Cavs’ front office that tanking was not the plan; competing for the playoffs was. I don’t believe he would have turned down $120 million, even if the Cavs were honest with him, but he has the right to feel frustrated and as though he’s left behind, as his teammates from those championship days have all been able to move on. Throw in Love’s frustrations over being injured so much, not to mention statistically this is the worst season of his career (10.9 points and 6.8 rebounds per game), and yeah, it’s clear he is not all in on the Cleveland rebuild.
