There’s been a lot of heavy criticism thrown Kevin Love’s way lately. Some of it is due, whether he likes it or not. The Cleveland Cavaliers’ forward does have issues scoring consistently. He does display some of the most awful looking defense in the NBA.
At the same time, not every negative thing said about Love is his fault. However, based on the reactions of Cleveland Twitter during games like Monday’s outright disaster of a loss to the Golden State Warriors, Cavs fans sure seem to think Love is to blame for everything.
To be fair, Love did have a game to forget Monday. He contributed very little offensively, and was targeted constantly by Golden State thanks to his bad defense. He wasn’t the only player who deserved blame, but he hardly dodged it either.
