Andrew Bogut calls people 'idiots' for thinking Kevin Love is soft

BY Andrew Lynch • June 9, 2016

You have to feel bad for Kevin Love these days.

The Cavaliers forward is having his reputation impugned after Cleveland rolled to a Game 3 win with Love on the sidelines. Meanwhile, he's dealing with the after-effects of a concussion -- a ridiculously painful injury made worse by the fact that there's no real way for the outside world to understand what you're going through. When you break a leg, we see the cast. When you injure your brain, the best we can do is dissect vague "symptoms."

Thanks to that lack of clarity, there are some not-so-nice fans out there calling Love soft. But don't let Andrew Bogut hear you say that, because the Golden State Warriors big man is having none of it.

Bogut's speaking from experience. He suffered what he claimed to be his first diagnosed concussion of his life earlier this year, and he told reporters back in November that the injury had him slightly shaken up:

As of Thursday afternoon, Love hadn't yet been cleared for Game 4 on Friday night, although there are early reports that he expects to play, potentially off of the bench. Until then, we just hope that he's able to get healthy as soon as possible. Bogut's right -- you don't mess around with the brain.
