Cavaliers G J.R. Smith bares his soul in written article
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/16/15) Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith refuted his reputation as selfish, compared former teammate Carmelo Anthony with LeBron James and defended embattled Cleveland forward Kevin Love in an article he wrote himself for The Cauldron.
Smith also came across as thoughtful in expressing his feelings about a shocking midseason that sent him from New York to Cleveland. But it was his defense of his character that stood out in the long piece.
"There have been unfair rumors that lead people to have misconceptions about me: that I don't care; that I don't take my job seriously; that I'm not committed to my craft," Smith wrote. "It's unfortunate, but people have been saying this about me during my entire career. It obviously bothers me and naturally would bother anyone to feel that people don't take you serious as a person. ... (after getting to know me) someone tells me I am a completely different person than who they perceived me to be."
Smith went on to write that Anthony is a pure scorer who has never had the luxury to play alongside the quality players afforded James or Kobe Bryant, but that he yearns to win as much as the other two. Smith concluded his piece by defending Love, whose numbers have fallen off considerably this year after a trade brought him from Minnesota.
"Forget what anyone says, Kevin Love is the ultimate teammate," Smith wrote. "He isn't the most athletic player out there - actually, Kevin is like that guy you see in a 40-and-up league just killing it because he knows the game better than anyone else out there. Mentally, Love is just in another stratosphere when it comes to understanding basketball. Plus, not only is he an underrated shooter who can knock down shots better than half the guards in the league, he is also the best rebounder I have played with, hands down."

Cavs clear forward Kevin Love (back) to play Sunday vs. Bulls
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(4/5/15) As expected, Cavaliers forward Kevin Love will be available to play in Sunday's game against the Bulls, coach David Blatt said, per the Northeast Ohio Media Group.
Love missed Thursday's contest while dealing with a back injury, which has bothered him for most of the season.
The Cavaliers are 8-point favorites.
Kevin Love to start for Cavaliers on Sunday
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/4/15) Cavaliers forward Kevin Love will return to the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Bulls.
Love missed Thursday's game with a sore back and was initially listed as questionable for Sunday. Coach David Blatt confirmed that Love would play after he was able to make it through an entire practice on Saturday.
"Kev looked pretty good today," Blatt said, per Cleveland.com. "Hopefully in the morning he'll feel as well as he did today."
|Kevin Love got his wish this offseason, as the Timberwolves ended up shipping him to Cleveland with one year on his contract. The move presents a major change for Love, who goes from being the unquestioned first option in Minnesota to having to share the ball with two other All-Stars in LeBron James and Kyrie Irving. Love put up tremendous numbers yet again last season, averaging 26.1 points, 12.5 rebounds and 4.4 assists per game, while ranking in the top-10 in the league in field-goal attempts, three-point attempts and free-throw attempts. Those numbers should all go down in his new home, but that doesn't mean Fantasy owners should be too concerned about Love's value. Now that he has more help, Love should be even more efficient as a scorer and passer than before, and should not slip much further than the middle part of the first round in most Fantasy leagues on Draft Day.
