Kevin Love is pulling "The Carmelo" right now with the Cleveland Cavaliers

One of the headline stories in the NBA for the past couple of days has been the displeasure of Kevin Love with the current situation in Cleveland. After LeBron's departure, nothing has been the same, and once a team that was regularly competing in the NBA finals is now far away from even making it into the playoffs. The Cavaliers are, unfortunately, a team with not a lot of vision, and it seems they are back to being mediocre, which is something that doesn't sit well with Love.

Even though his numbers are down, Love is still a player that can give any team 15-20 points and quickly grab ten rebounds. On top of all that, he developed a consistent three-point shot, which is useful in today's game. Love is looking to getting traded into a team that will be competing in the playoffs, and in one of his recent Twitts, Bill Simmons said Love is pulling "The Carmelo".

"When someone willingly signs a lucrative long-term deal with a dead-end or rebuilding team, then 15-18 months later pulls the whole "I'm unhappy, I want to play for a contender" card - we should just call this "The Carmelo." As in, "Kevin Love is pulling The Carmelo right now."

The Cavs can still get some first-round picks out of that deal, but time is running out, and Love is currently decreasing his value on the market. Whether Love will be traded or not depends on whether teams will be able to absorb his massive contract worth $120 million over the next three years.
