KEVIN LOVE PUMIRMA NG 4-YEAR, $120M EXTENSION SA CAVALIERS

By: - 07/25/2018

HINDI lilisanin ni Kevin Love ang Cleveland anumag oras.

Muling pumirma ang All-Star forward ng apat na taon, $120 million kontrata sa Cavaliers na nasa panibagong yugto matapos ang pag-alis ni LeBron James.
Nilagdaan ni Love ang contract extension Miyerkules at agad na nagpost ng larawan sa Instagram kung saan pinalilibutan siya ng mga construction workers sa loob ng Quicken Loans, Arena, ang downtown home ng Cavaliers na kasalukuyang sumasailalim sa renovation.
“When I first came to Cleveland, I came with a long-term mindset,” said Love, who joined the team in 2014 after six seasons in Minnesota. “I came here to win. We developed a culture here that reflects that. I’m super excited and I couldn’t be happier. It’s a big commitment for me and it’s a big commitment from the Cavaliers, so I want to thank (owner) Dan Gilbert, (general manager) Koby Altman and the entire organization,” sabi ni Love.
“I enjoy playing here, I’m excited about the team that we have and look forward to our future together. Cleveland fans have been special from day one and I’m also looking forward to continuing to be a part of this great community” dagdag pa niya.
Nakakumpleto ang 29-year old ng apat na na season sa Cleveland na kamakailan lamang ay nilampaso ng Golden State sa NBA Finals.
Ang pagkatalong iyon ay sinundan naman ng pag-alis ni James sa koponan na piniling maging free agent sa pangalawang pagkakataon sa kanyang career para pumirma ng kontrata sa Los Angeles Lakers.
Ibinunyag ni Love noong nakalipas na season na nakipaglaban siya sa anxiety.
Inatasan naman si Altman na panatilihing malakas at palaban ang Cleveland sa kabila ng paglisan ni James at ang muling pagpirma ng kontrata ni Love ang inaasahang magiging daan upang maisakatuparan ang layuning ito.
“This quickly became a partnership the second we began these discussions, Collaboration and winning matter greatly to Kevin and that was reflected in this extension. Kevin’s talent and character are both at a very high level and he has earned his role at the center of what we want to do moving forward. As a five-time All-Star and NBA champion, Kevin has a special understanding of exactly what success and winning require.” sabi ni Altman.
