Lebron discusses challenges of not playing alongside love following another Cavs Loss:

"It's been a long time since I haven't played with another All-Star on my team," James said. "So, having Kev out has been very challenging for all of us. Kev has a big usage rate on our team. He'll get the ball when things get tight, chaotic; we can throw it to him in the low post and get some things going."

I feel like Kevin Love must really like hearing this because it seems like he has really been underappreciated for much of his time there. It seems like Love has been on the block for large parts of the next few years. I wonder what would happen with him if Lebron leaves. Would people still want Love on the Celtics? I am worried he is not going to age very because of his ongoing back issues. He still can put up great numbers, but that seems like a chronic thing.

Cavs are falling apart health wise, but managed to win in Chicago tonight as Korver sat out this one to go along with Love, Thompson, Hood, Nance, and Osman.  They are down so many players that both their 2 way players logged non-crunch time minutes and they played only had 9 active players and they had Zizic, Green, and Calderon all start the game (along with James and Hill).  Not sure why they haven't filled that open roster spot yet, but they certainly could use the body.

Edit: With the Pacers losing, the Cavs are back in the 3 seed spot, but are just 1 loss better than the Pacers, Wizards, and Sixers.

They most likely haven't filled the open roster spot because of the luxury tax.  Minimum guys aren't really minimum when you're in the repeater tax.

Zizic 14 and 6 tonight on 7-9 shooting. Not bad. George Hill though looks underwhelming. I thought he'd be better for them, but he looks like the George Hill of Sacramento, which is not good.

Well let's call it both ways. Bulls, desperately trying to lose, sat Lopez, Dunn, Levine, Markenen and had 9 total players still had the game tied in the last few minutes. Lebron and high school players should win in that situation

Seems like an injury prone player, Kevin Love that is. Also his defense isn't that great. He would've been awesome in Celtics uniform 2014, no doubt.

ok, that's every team he's played with  now that he's bashed his teammates.

I figured we'd hear him complain in the playoffs but he couldn't wait.

great player.

be interested to see if Love returns for the game.  last week he was looking at Wednesday or Friday.  I haven't heard if that has changed or been more firmed up one way or the other.

Windy must've realized he had gone a couple of weeks without a Lebron fluff piece.

So, is HGH the solution to back trouble? I wish Larry had known that secret.

Love is questionable for tonight, and may actually go. 

Be interesting to see how they do without Lue.

I like Lue the person but I'm unsure about Lue the coach. Hope he gets better I'm sure being the coach of the most covered team in the NBA comes with plenty of stress.

+1. Larry definitely would have played longer with access to that
