REPORT: LeBron James ‘Frustrated’ With Kevin Love

LeBron James and Kevin Love’s relationship continues to take an awkward dive. Though James showed great excitement when the Cavs acquired Love, it hasn’t been as easy he’d imagined it being.

Love went from being the go-to-guy in Minnesota, coming off a career season in which he averaged 26.1 points, 12.5 rebounds and 4.4 assists per game, but this season his stats have taken quite a hit because of the obvious sacrifice he has made playing alongside James and Kyrie Irving.

The Cavs finally got things together in 2015, their pretty much set to lock in the second seed in the East and are the heavy favorites to come out of the Eastern Conference.

However, James is reportedly “frustrated” with Love for not “getting with the program”.

This report comes out a few days after Love chose Russell Westbrook over James when discussing the MVP race and revealed that he and James are far from best friends.

Via NY Daily News:

Love’s next move may depend on how the Cavs fare in May and June. But if you read the tea leaves, or in this case James’ tweets, Love may be leaving as fast as you can say “Andrew Wiggins.”

In February, James seemed to be addressing Love’s attitude and role when he tweeted: “Stop trying to find a way to FIT-OUT and just FIT-IN. Be apart of something special! Just my thoughts.”

Recently, James posted a photo on Instagram that he referred to as “Clique Up!!” The picture included James, Irving, Iman Shumpert, J.R. Smith, Tristan Thompson and Timofey Mozgov. Conspicuously absent from the picture? Love.

But several sources close to the situation in Cleveland claim that James has tried to make it work but that he’s frustrated by Love’s inability, and in some ways unwillingness, to get with the program. Remember, James pushed the Cavs to trade Wiggins to the Timberwolves to acquire Love, who could be one-and-done in Cleveland.
