LeBron James on Kevin Love: ‘I Expect Big Things from Him’

by October 01, 2015

The Cleveland Cavaliers’ offensive attack in 2015-16 will feature a lot more of Kevin Love than it did during his ill-fated first season in Ohio.

LeBron James, for one, has huge expectations for his teammate and thinks Love will now be able to fit in with his Cavs squad.

Head coach David Blatt, echoing what the front-office announced this summer, plans to have the rock in the three-time All-star’s hands quite a bit going forward.


“I just think he’s more comfortable in the situation that he’s in,” James said after practice Wednesday. “He’s got a year under his belt; he knows what he expects out of himself and what his teammates expect out of him. I expect big things from him this year with a year up under his belt.”


James was expounding upon his statement at Monday’s media day that Love’s increased presence will allow James to sit back and rest more than he has in years past. […] “He will do some of the things he did prior to last year,” James continued.


Once Love committed to the Cavs long-term, Blatt spent the offseason trying to figure out a way to get more out of his stretch 4. […] “No question, this summer we looked for and identified ways that we can take advantage of Kev’s unique skill set, and hopefully we’ll see that on the floor,” Blatt said.
