Former Cleveland Cavaliers player Kevin Love has revealed that Los Angeles Lakers “could do something special” this year.
Los Angeles Lakers have finished their Monday night’s visit to Cleveland with 128-99 result.
Speaking after the match, James’ former teammate at Cavaliers, Love, told ESPN: “Everybody did [have some doubt]. What do they say, I’m not a religious guy, but, ‘You want to make God laugh, tell him your plans’? There’s no sure thing other than death and taxes, right? Another cliché. But it’s true. Who is to know that it will all work out? But they got really fortunate that it’s obviously L.A., it’s LeBron and they’re in win-now mode. They really have a chance.”
Monday’s clash was the first time James and Love had played against each other since James’ quit from Cleveland for L.A. as a free agent in the summer of 2018.
“It was different because it’s been so long and we’ve been through so many battles with each other. I’m not going to say it felt normal, but I feel like we were both out there competing and playing hard, but seeing him play with that team is obviously different. Especially, even I didn’t get to see him with AD [Anthony Davis] and it still feels like they could do something special,” he added.
