LeBron James, with more than 18 million Twitter followers, his tweets are followed with a lot of scrutiny. On the night of February 7th, LeBron put out a tweet saying:

It wasn’t too hard to find out the true content of the tweet. Kevin Love had already told Dave McMenamin of ESPN that he was told to ‘fit-out’: 

“I’m comfortable and just not trying to, I guess, fit in so much. I had a talk with the guys on the plane ride over [to Brazil] and also at different practices off the floor and they told me to fit out. Just be myself.”

When LeBron was out, the Cavaliers went on a cold-streak, and no one seemed to be a leader, something Kevin Love as a veteran in this league, should have stepped up and done. Since then, the Cavaliers have won 13 of 14 with LeBron, and it seems like the message is getting to Kevin Love.

Love is a free agent this summer, but don’t expect to leave this early, he seem’s like he is in this for the long haul.
