Kevin Loves Gets Real When Talking About Playing With LeBron James
Some love from K-Love.
When asked about his time spent playing with arguably the greatest player ever, Kevin Love had some pretty honest answers about it. In a recent interview with ESPN, Kevin opens up about the good, the bad and the ugly side of being a teammate with King James.
Nobody can deny the talent LeBron James has. But many people speculate that he is a very hard teammate to play with, that he’s too controlling for his own good and clearly demands perfection.
Hear what Love had to say about that:

It is refreshing to hear an honest insight about playing with LeBron — something that could only come from a veteran star like Love, who doesn’t once sugarcoat his words.
He makes it clear that there were times when James controlled the team too much, or put pressure on his teammates through his consistent excellence. But Love also remarks on all the great things about playing with LeBron, too.
Kevin Love on playing with LeBron James:
“I always appreciated playing with who I think is the best player ever,” Love said during his interview with The Hang Time Podcast. “I would say to guys in huddles, ‘Man, we’re watching something special. This is the best player ever.'”

While other star players will always take a backseat to James, Love states that “You have to follow. You have to learn a lot about that.”
And if there’s any player to learn from in this league, it’s certainly LeBron James.
