Some tough news coming out of Cleveland as Kevin Love has to undergo arthroscopic knee surgery and will miss about six weeks of action. The man who defended Stephen Curry on the last possession of Game 7 in the 2016 NBA Finals is averaging 20 points and 11.1 rebounds per game for the Cavs. Love, who has been involved in a few trade rumors over the past few weeks, was also selected to the Eastern Conference All-Star team this year and will now be replaced.
