About Kevin Love:
Putting the entire NBA on notice with his consistent record-breaking performances, 6'10" (3x) NBA All-Star Kevin Love continues to prove that he is the real deal. Reaching career highs in assists and points per game in 2013-2014, the Cavaliers power forward also boasts a competitive low-post game and the versatility to pose a threat from the perimeter, as evident by record-breaking streak of 53 straight double-doubles.
Love took his game to new heights on Nov. 12, 2010, against the Knicks, becoming the 19th player ever to record a “30-30" (30 points and 30 rebounds) in a single game, when he had 31 points along with a career- high 31 rebounds. Love also made history as the first player to record a 30–30 game since Moses Malone in 1982.
In addition to his stellar play on the court, Love's personality has deemed him a media and fan favorite off- the-court. Follow him @kevinlove on Twitter and Instagram.
