Kevin Love is battered and bruised, but the 29-year-old All-Star says everything he went through this season was “well worth it.”
Love is set to play in his fourth consecutive NBA Finals for the Cavs, but he’s recovering from a concussion that may keep him out of Game 1.

Love acknowledges that he had difficulty accepting his role in Cleveland, and the sting of the criticism that followed.
Per the AP:
“I’ve been through enough for a guy who has been here for 12 years,” he told the AP following a recent practice. “It’s been well worth it.”
The next stop on his odyssey is the Finals, and a chance to finish on a high note. Love believes he’s already hit one in Cleveland.
“For me, the glass has always been half full whether I’ll play here four years or 14 years, I will have looked back and said it was a great time,” he said. “This has all been worth it. We got to hang a banner and hopefully there will be more to come.”
