LeBron James does not help up Kevin Love (Video)
The chemistry (or lack thereof) between LeBron James and Kevin Love continues to be an issue.
During the fourth quarter of Wednesday’s Cavs-Knicks game, Love fell to the floor after the Knicks scored a basket. James was right next to him and even stared his teammate in the face, but he declined to help him up:
Tristan Thompson, who inbounded the ball for the Cavs, had to come over and help up his teammate.
There’s no way around this: that did not look good on James’ end at all. We know he and Love have had a rocky road since the start, and there were reports explaining what LeBron didn’t like about Love. But Love ended up signing a long-term extension with the Cavs, indicating he will be a big part of their future. LeBron better start to respect him, or Love better earn that respect, because James shouldn’t be treating a teammate with the disrespect typically reserved for dunk victims.
