Kevin Love wants to remain with Cleveland, finish career with LeBron James

One minute, the NBAFinals were a drama-free sweep, with the Warriors simply superior to LeBron James' undermanned Cavaliers team that had just fallen in Game 4 on Friday at Quicken Loans Arena.
He said: "Kobe, M.J., LeBron, Kareem, those dudes drive me, they push me every day to get to that level, to that standard and I want to be able to sit back and talk to them about basketball one day". Earlier this week, his Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals for the second straight season, sweeping them this time in four games.
"I think you'll see a lot of that around the league". James walked to the podium with a cast on and told reporters that he played essentially played the last three games with a broken hand. LeBron has to notify the team of his intentions by June 29.
For some reason, when splitting hairs between Jordan and LeBron's talent level, rings are counted.
"He has the opportunity to stay in the Eastern Conference and go to a young team with a great chance of winning". James already owns two homes and a film production company in Los Angeles, where the star could become a supernova. LeBron and Paul George could team up to create a new version of the showtime Lakers days.

And he increased the tempo further, consigning Thiem to defeat in his first major final when the Austrian sent a return long. However, in Open Era, he is the first player ever (man or woman) to complete La Undécima in a single Grand Slam event.
Unlike most of Lebron's suitors, the Heat now lacks a star to pair him up with, but is an organization James knows very well (he's played four seasons there and won two championships). "That's their job. They make too much money".
However, LeBron still has three NBA trophies and three NBA Finals MVP awards to his name and his 15th season proved he is still in his prime. The futures of Kevin Love and head coach Tyronn Lue could be elsewhere if James leaves the wine and gold.
What he is sure of is that if and when he does opt out of his contract and hit the free agent market, his family will have a bigger say in his decision than they've ever had before. (13) and Bryce (10) were also around for their famous father's four-year run in Miami, while his daughter, Zhuri, isn't even yet 4-years-old.
"I get asked all the time about MJ, LeBron, and it's such a hard question to ask", Kerr said following Game 4. But I like to be here.
"When I decide what I'm going to do with my future, my family and the folks that have been with me for the last 20 years will have a say-so, " he said.
