LeBron James deflects questions on Kevin Love's role with the Cavaliers

BY foxsports • June 10, 2016

Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love suffered a concussion in Game 2 of the NBA Finals after taking an elbow to the head, which caused him to miss Game 3.

With Richard Jefferson starting in Love's place in Game 3 and LeBron moving to power forward, the Cavs crushed the Golden State Warriors by 30. That has now begged the question: If Love is cleared to play in Game 4 Friday night, should he still be a starter?

LeBron James was asked those questions after Friday morning's shootaround -- which Love participated in fully -- and deflected them to head coach Tyronn Lue.

Lue didn't speak to reporters on Friday after the shootaround and had this to say Thursday to whether Love remain a starter:

So, who knows what either of them really thinks, but Love has started every game he's played in for the Cavaliers over the last two years. It'd seem like a bit of an overreaction to one game to yank him from the starting lineup now (assuming he can play starter's minutes), thinking they've found the key to beating the Warriors.
