Everybody calm down. I can’t stress this enough.
Kevin Love has officially opted out of the final year of his deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Despite him repeatedly saying he plans on returning to the team next year, Love will be a free agent next month, forcing the Cavs to have to try and woo him into re-signing. Everyone who said Love was going to leave is now pointing at this news and getting their “told you so” statements ready.
However, my suggestion to Cleveland fans would be to just keep re-reading the opening sentence and take some deep breaths. Why? Well, in no uncertain terms, if there’s anyone who isn’t surprised by this news, it’s the Cavs.
