InsideHoops.com sent a tweet after the Irving story broke in the afternoon
, asking "Hi @KevinLove, how are things" and because they tagged Love, the four-time All-Star was able to see it in his mentions. From there, he sent the perfect response. ESPN.com
There’s something peculiar about Love’s word choice. Surely he was aware of Kyrie Irving’s comments at a Sports Illustrated event this past week: “We’re in a very peculiar place
, and we just need to make sure that all our pieces are aligned first, and then we go from there,” Irving said. “It’s the summertime, a lot of craziness going on in the NBA, so best to just observe, and then see what happens. Obviously, there’s some things that I’m pretty sure our organization wants to do, and we’ll go from there.” Yahoo Sports
To be fair, he did sort of mention the Irving situation by calling the situation “peculiar.” He may be intentionally using that after Kyrie said the team is in a “peculiar place”
during an interview with Sports Illustrated. But he’s just going to leave it at that since he has little control over what the font office ultimately decides to do. Love is just going to enjoy his time off. But in the meantime, he’ll own a Twitter account or two. SB Nation
It’s hard to interpret exactly how Love meant that comment, but it didn’t come across in a great way. The Cavaliers certainly have an interesting situation on their hands, and with rumors swirling that James may have an interest in going to Los Angeles in 2018 free agency
, it may only get even messier. It also doesn’t help that LeBron recently took a shot at owner Dan Gilbert amidst the team’s decision to part ways with general manager David Griffin. Heavy.com
Though Love's tweet was relatively harmless, aside from the "kick some rocks" joke
, the way he used Irving's "peculiar" phrasing only added fuel to the fire in what's been a peculiar day in NBA news. TheScore
