Lebron James and Kyrie Irving.
That is all the reason Kevin Love needs to join the Cleveland Cavaliers. With James’ averaging 26 points and 6 assists per game, the inside game would be insane adding on Love with his 26 points and 12 rebounds.
Kyrie Irving with his explosiveness and court vision is a big factor with Love & James on the team. Minnesota Timberwolves’ Ricky Rubio had already displayed how Love can react from a bullet pass anywhere on the floor, whether inside or behind the arc. As well as the perfect pick-and-roll Rubio and Love had that made them one the best duos in the league. However, it wasn’t enough.
Now think about Love setting the pick, allowing Irving to drive in with James open on the wing or can assist down low? Love’s & James’ “pick and pop” where they can shoot off a three pointer off a pick? There would be an unreasonable amount of post plays and screen options for this roster. And James is highly experienced from the big three strategy from Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade & Chris Bosh. James has been so successful throughout his career with pick and roll plays that adding Love & Irving will make it one of the most powerful offensive teams in the NBA. James’ has done it before.
Lebron’s defensive strategies with definitely be a factor for Irving, Love and the rest of the Cavs as he was first team member NBA all-defensive squad.
Some say what about Andrew Wiggins? Of course the kid has potential and years to come, but Love is already there, just needs the full roster to play with. However, it’s not going to be easy for that trade to occur.
This could be the beginning of the new Big Three and possibly better than the one Lebron left, if it works out.
