Kevin Love Pens Heartfelt and Hilarious Message to Channing Frye as Retirement Nears

Kevin Love and Channing Frye

Cleveland Cavaliers big man Channing Frye is retiring at the end of the year. With the Cavs already eliminated from the playoffs, Frye only has eight games remaining before he hangs up his sneakers for good.

On Monday, Cavs power forward Kevin Love took to Instagram to pay tribute to his friend and teammate. Love’s message was both heartfelt and funny.

Love and Frye have spent parts of four seasons as teammates and developed a close friendship during that time.

Frye was acquired by the Cavs in the 2015-16 season and won a title that year alongside Love, LeBron James and Kyrie Irving.

Cleveland then sent Frye to the Los Angeles Lakers last season as part of the Isaiah Thomas trade. Frye entered free agency following the 2017-18 season and elected to return to the Cavs this summer.

At the start of March, the 13-year veteran announced that this would be his final NBA season.

Frye has appeared in just 33 games this season. He is averaging 3.4 points and 1.5 rebounds per game on the year, and shooting 39.4 percent from beyond the arc.

With only a few weeks remaining in his NBA career, it’s likely that Frye will get a bit of playing time in Cleveland’s final games.
