LeBron James sings happy birthday to Kevin Love on Instagram

Published Add your comment

Kevin Love has often seemed like an outsider looking in at the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Signed in a trade for number one draft pick Andrew Wiggins with the Minnesota Timberwolves in 2014, the forward was acquired to form a 'big three' with Kyrie Irving and LeBron James.

Under David Blatt, it seemed that Love's tenure with the Cavaliers was destined to fail but he - along with a number of his teammates - was reinvigorated upon the promotion of Tyronn Lue to head coach.

However, despite winning a championship ring, there are still murmurs that he could be moved on after still failing to produce his best game for the Wine and Gold.

Throughout all of this, Cleveland's leader, LeBron, has insisted that Love is part of the family, and on his 28th birthday yesterday, the 'King' had a special Instagram message for his teammate.

Pointing at a picture of Love during his UCLA days, sporting a goatee with a chin strap and short hair for his March Madness Sports Illustrated cover, LeBron sang happy birthday in what can be considered one of his weirder posts of 2016 - and there have been a few.

It's a good job he is brilliant at basketball, a career in music really isn't on the table for the four-time MVP.
