NBA ROLE: STAR, INSIDE-OUT POWER FORWARD

 

When healthy and engaged, there’s no doubt that K-Love is still one of the league’s top bigs – grabs at least 10 boards very single night, feasts from downtown & is tough to check in the paint (when CLE makes a point to find him); adjusted to a lesser role during CLE's title appearances; spaces the floor perfectly for penetrating guards (allows room for driving lanes) excellent PnR partner; plays a lot of five: stretches out opposing bigs, though not the most ideal defensive complement v. smaller, more uptempo lineups; master outlet passer – with a flicka da wrist, Love zips terrific touchdown passes to streaking teammates; barometer for success: Cavs play best when Love is confident & contributing at a high level
