Unnamed teammate aggravated Kevin Love’s shoulder injury with slap during celebration
After the Cleveland Cavaliers put away the Atlanta Hawks in the Eastern Conference finals, Kevin Love joined his teammates on the court to celebrate when an unidentified teammate slapped Love’s arm, sending a shooting pain through his entire body.
"I walk out there, the teammate will remain nameless, I go up and give him a big hug, [and I said] ‘Congratulations,’ and he takes his arm and he goes, ‘Ah yeah man, good game’ and just hits me right on the arm," Love explained. "Some of the front office staff who was out there with me kind of had to grab me and said, ‘Are you OK?’"
"It was one of those deals where it was kind of shooting pain through my entire body," Love said, "but I was a little woozy and kind of all over the place for a few minutes. But I was able to calm myself down."
So, who’s the culprit? Since Love won’t say, we can only speculate.
Actually never mind that — just put it on Matthew Dellavedova’s body count like a running tab.
