As if we needed any more proof that Kevin Love is the black sheep of the Cavaliers, LeBron James left Love hanging in Monday night’s Game 5 of the NBA Finals.
Love is seen cheering a Cavs score, goes up to LeBron – with a smile – for a high-five and is immediately ridiculed by “The King.” Oh, and then Love goes from looking like a giddy child to having his lunch money stolen.
LeBronmay have a point here despite the harshness of this episode. He scored 41 points and grabbed 16 reboundsin the Cavs’ Game 5 road win. Love, meanwhile, scored a measly two points and had three rebounds in 33 minutes.
Love isn’t the first big-name pro athlete to be snubbed in the high five area. New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has made it a habit of whiffing on celebrations.
