cavsPower Forward: 6’10, 251 lbs; 10th year, UCLA

NBA Role: star, inside-out power forward Hybrid

K-Love: a former franchise forward in Minny who’s finallyyy adjusted to a lessened role on a championship contender; when healthy and engaged, there’s no doubt that Love is still one of the league’s top PFs – grabs at least 10 boards very single night, feasts in the mid-post near the elbow (when he wants to/when CLE makes a point to find him) & pops out for 3s; spaces the floor perfectly next to LeBron James and Kyrie Irving but is nowhere near the defensive complement Cleveland needs to maximize its lineup (though did contribute, “The Stop” in G7 of the 2016 Finals); master outlet passer – wit the flicka da wrist, Love zips terrific touchdown passes to streaking teammates; Love is a go-to option from almost anywhere

Signature Move: side step, 3
