Supposedly a member of their big three, Kevin Love has been left in the dust while LeBron James and Kyrie Irving do the heavy lifting for the Cavs. In Game 6, Love had a total of three field goal attempts. James and Irving combined for 45.
Regardless of what happens in Game 7, there are a lot of reports out there indicating that Love's time in Cleveland is coming to a close. He hasn't gelled with their other two stars, and his role in the offense has seemingly disappeared.
Cavs fans have clearly grown restless with his lack of production in the Finals.

Apparently, another budding contender in the Eastern Conference who previously expressed interest in Love has re-entered the running.
From the report:
Danny Ainge attend a workout with Excel Sports Management clients in New York City recently and met with prominent agent Jeff Schwartz, a league source told RealGM’s Andrew Perna. Schwartz represents Love, as well as Harrison Barnes, who will be a restricted free agent this summer.
Brandon Ingram, the presumed No. 2 pick in next week’s draft is also a client of Excel, but Ainge is believed to have inquired with Schwartz about whether a trade for Love could be revisited.
This meeting might not lead to anything, but given the previous rumors connecting Boston to Love, it's something to at least keep in mind.
