Wednesday Morning Man: Kevin Love!
NBA star Kevin Love of the Cleveland Cavaliers had what will likely be the greatest first half of his career last night.
Love, 29, scored 32 points in the first half in his team’s victory over the Miami Heat.
Love is four-time All-Star and won an NBA championship with the Cavaliers in 2016. He was also a member of the gold medal-winning USA men’s national team at the 2010 FIBA World Championship and the 2012 Summer Olympics.
A few years back, Love was one of the six athletes who agreed to strip down for ESPN Magazine’s The Body Issue.
What an outstanding choice!
Love said of the experience: ABC News of the experience: “In a way when you first take off that robe you are like, ‘Here I am! I’m out there,’” he said. “So it was an experience. … It took probably 45 minutes to an hour to really get comfortable but once we started going I was pretty good and really getting into it.”
To prepare for the photo shoot, Love got a little extra sun and stuck to his strict diet and fitness routine.
“I always say that it is easier to stay in shape than to get back into shape, so I always make sure that I am always having the proper nutrition, always working out, and always working with the right people so this was no substitute,” he said.
Whatever he’s doing, it’s working!
