Can’t Buy Me Kevin Love
No matter how he plays, no matter how many rebounds he hauls in, no
matter how good of an attitude he displays with his teammates and
coaches, Cleveland Cavaliers forward/center Kevin Love keeps getting
blamed for the woes of his team. A team which continues to lose and whine and
wonder when their teammate, coach, GM, president, and King of the
World, LeBron James, will trade Love for some player he thinks gives
him a better chance to beat the Golden State Warriors in the NBA
Finals this season.
Love is the fall guy for this team and yet several others aren’t
playing particularly well. The reason he gets the blame is LeBron
isn’t too fond of him personally and when LeBron feels that way about
you and you’re on his team, Kevin Houston, you’ve got a problem.
The irony of all this is, of course, is that Love is the nephew of
some guy who was affiliated with The Beach Boys, a famous band that
got hot in the 1970s with hits such as “Good Vibrations,” “Snoop John
B,” and “Help Me, Rhonda.”
You would think because of this there would be a song by this band
that fits Love’s current maladies and teammate problems. But not the
case. Instead, the band that has a song that fits his situation is one
named the Beatles, who got really big in the 1960s and 70s, in fact so
big that to this date there has never been a band that has impacted
the music world the way those four guys from Liverpool, England did.
One of their early hits, “Can’t Buy Me Love,” fits Kevin’s Love’s
interpersonal team dynamics. This is so because he can’t buy love from
his teammates; all they give him is blame for their losing ways. And
the team so far has not been able to convince another team to buy Love
to take him off its balance sheet so they can proceed to the NBA
Finals with LeBron feeling good about things.
Whether Kevin Love is the root cause of the Cavaliers stinking this
season is beside the point. What’s important to understand is that
“Can’t Buy Me Love” was, and still is, a killer song.
