Kevin Love blasts Kyrie Irving for calling members of the media ‘pawns’

2 Min Read

Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving were teammates for many years.

Though they surely were on the same side during their time on the Cleveland Cavaliers, Love has distanced himself from Irving’s recent criticism of the media that surrounds the NBA.

Last week, Irving announced that he would not speak with members of the media this season. It’s the latest perplexing move that the talented guard has made.

The decision occurred on the cusp of a season in which Irving’s Brooklyn Nets are expected to seriously contend for a title. Irving and teammate Kevin Durant are expected to be one of the most talented duos in the NBA this season.

As for Love, he’s hoping to lead a young Cavs team to greater success than it enjoyed last season. Last year, the Cavs won just 19 games.

Just as the Cavs and Nets could be on opposite sides of the standings this upcoming season, it appears that Love and Irving are on opposite sides of this argument.

Though Love could try to speak with Irving and convince him to take a different approach, Irving is not known to back down from his stances, no matter how outlandish they sometimes prove to be.
