Mario Chalmers says Kevin Love needs to call Chris Bosh to learn how to adapt

With the Cleveland Cavaliers trailing the Golden State Warriors 3-1 in the NBA Finals, questions are beginning to be asked about the Ohio-based franchise and why they cannot dethrone Steve Kerr's men.

They fell 4-2 in the series last year as LeBron James shouldered an unbelievable workload with Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving on the shelf. This time around, it was meant to be different. James had his superstar supporting cast and revenge on his mind,

King James has done all that he can to carry his organisation towards a first ever NBA championship, but not all of his teammates can say the same.

Love has frequently been singled as the odd man out and former LeBron teammate has suggested someone the forward should call to help him complement his star-studded teammates better.

"I think he can be a good fit. If I was Kevin Love I would call Chris Bosh," said Chalmers in an interview with Sirius XM Radio talking about the NBA Finals.

It's easy to see Chalmers' point. For the Miami Heat, Chris Bosh arrived from the Toronto Raptors as one of the finest forward's in the league and prior to his arrival on South Beach he was putting up, on average, comfortably north of 20 points a night.

However, his role with the Heat changed when LeBron entered the fray. With James and Dwyane Wade, Bosh became the third scoring option at the American Airlines Arena and he was often the glue that held Miami's Big Three together.

That trio would win two titles in four consecutive trips to the Finals. The current Cleveland threesome came up empty-handed last year and are on the verge of a second failure at the final hurdle in a row.

Love needs to figure out how to contribute in a similar fashion. Right now, it appears as though the big man is lost in the shuffle in the Cleveland rotation and his statistics and it's becoming hard to justify the $20 million he earns a year.
