NBA Finals Game 6 is just a day away. In an unusual way of supporting Cavaliers, a fan has set up a GoFund Me campaign to round up funds so Kevin Love will sit out the game.
The campaign, started by Giles Debenham from Bay Village, Ohio, seeks to raise $10 million just so Kevin Love won’t play in the crucial Game 6 for Cleveland Cavaliers. He wrote, “Kevin Love is playing like a bum and just taking up room on the court. Pay this man to take a seat and let the Cavs win these finals!!”
Created on June 14, 2016, the campaign has raised $80 as of writing. Contributors ranged from supportive fans, with one saying “sit your ass down,” to the coerced ones admitting someone twisted his arm for the donation. Another one who donated left a joke on Kevin Love that poked fun on the NBA star’s endurance.
Here is the joke:
“Q: What is the difference between Kevin Love and a dollar bill?
A: You can still get four quarters out of a dollar bill.”
Kevin Love’s Stats
After Love sat out Game 3, Cavaliers had an upset win against Golden State Warriors. However, when he came back on the court in Game 4 and started again for the Cavaliers in Game 5, Love’s efficiency on the court was noticeably low. Currently, Kevin Love’s Finals game has yielded him an average of 8.8 points with six rebounds. His shooting efficiency is also on the downside with 37.1% from the field and 28.6% on three-pointers, USA Today reports.
For game 5, Kevin Love delivered a dismal 2 points and 3 rebounds whereas Kyrie Irving and LeBron James shared 41 points each.
Triumvirate’s Weakest Link
The Cavaliers’ Triumvirate is their best bet against Warriors’ Splash brothers. But before they can compete against the Splash Brothers’ 17 3-pointers in one game, Love needs to quit being the weakest link and break out of the shooting rut he is in in time for NBA Finals game 6.
One good thing is that coach Tyronn Lue and the rest of the guys are behind him all the way. However, he needs to pick his game up fast in time for NBA finals game 6 if they want to force a Game 7 on the Warriors.
