Cleveland Cavaliers teammates LeBron James and Kevin Love are saying goodbye.
LeBron left Ohio for California, signing a four-year deal with the Los Angeles Lakers worth more than $150 million. Love, meanwhile, remains faithful to his team, agreeing to a four-year extension with the Cavs.
Speculations circled about LeBron and Kevin’s relationship – suggesting it is a little bit tenuous at times – but the two appear to be on good terms now.
James and Love have been reunited in Las Vegas at Team USA’s minicamp, proving their closeness with a photo on Instagram.
“Thursday Morning Work,” he wrote.
This is the second time this week that LeBron and Love have reached out to one another. Earlier this week, James congratulated his former teammate on his new contract with the Cavs.
“Secure the bag!!! Congrats brother @kevinlove. Nobu Malibu or Wally’s on you!!!” James wrote.
Earlier this week, Love explained his decision to sign long-term in Cleveland.
“I’d like to thank the Cleveland Cavaliers organization, [owner] Dan Gilbert and Koby Altman for having their trust in me and believing in our future,” Love said. “When I got traded here a few years back, I was committed to being here long term and I was committed to our culture, excellence in playing the game of basketball. And I think who we have on our team and who we have moving forward really reflects that.”
LeBron on the other hand, is yet to speak up about choosing to sign with the Lakers later this week.
Teammates or not, we are happy to hear that these two remain good friends.
