It seems the Cleveland Cavaliers‘ fanbase will do just about anything to bring home an NBA Championship, even if it means demanding a first-round pick caliber player to sit next game.
The NBA Finals road has been tough for Kevin Love. His recorded playoff stats have not dipped too far below his usual efforts, but his health and performances compared to the likes of LeBron James and Kyrie Irving show that he is slacking. Ever since his Game 2 concussion, Love has had trouble bouncing back and finding his integral role on the team. Throughout this series with the Warriors, Love has only scored 35 points total, not even coming close to James and Irving's 41 point performances in Game 5.
Love's inability to elevate his game to the next level has frustrated certain Cavs fans. An individual named Giles Debenham has even started his own GoFundMe campaign to raise enough money to have Love not play in Game 6. For a goal of $10 million before tomorrow's game, Debenham has some serious advertising to do if he wants to make his goal.
So far, only $40 has been donated. Eight separate people have donated $5 each, so maybe this collective effort will snowball into a gigantic cash flow overnight.
Either way, Kevin Love and the rest of the Cavs team needs to put all this negative attention out of their minds and focus on winning these next two teams if they want to make NBA history.
