Video: Kevin Love makes long trip to China only to discover he has a LeBron James tag on his baggage

Kevin Love LeBron James

Even though they are no longer teammates for the Cleveland Cavaliers, Kevin Love simply can’t get rid of Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James.

Love recently made a trip to China and has been pictured hanging out and catching up with Yao Ming. But even though he is halfway around the world, there is no escaping James’ influence.

Love realized this while checking out his Nike luggage tag, and immediately took a video to chastise the fact that no matter where he is, James will always follow.

When Love jokingly voices his dismay, his companion simply chuckles and shrugs his shoulders, responding “What do you expect?”

LeBron has the most endorsements of any NBA player and is sponsored by huge worldwide corporations that are recognizable anywhere, like McDonald’s, Coca-Cola, Kia, and Samsung. Nike, the brand Love was using that contained LeBron’s name, signed James to a lifetime deal that many believe to be $1 billion.

Even if LeBron wasn’t so famous, Love’s name will always be linked to his because of what they accomplished as teammates on the Cavs.

The trio of James, Love, and Kyrie Irving made three straight finals together. They won the 2015-16 championship, completing an epic 3-1 comeback for the ages against what many consider as one of the greatest teams of all time in the 73-9 Golden State Warriors.

Kevin Love’s buddy has a point.  When you are as famous and affluent as LeBron James is, your name is going to be everywhere, no matter how far you go. Love is going to have to get used to seeing it.
