Last Thursday’s trade deadline was a fairly quiet affair for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Sure, you can discuss the merits of Kendrick Perkins and his presence as a fourth big for this streaking team.

The second-quarter outburst from Kevin Love in Sunday’s win over the Lakers at first seemed to be the turning of the tide for his disappointing Cavaliers season.

LeBron James subtweets Kevin Love about “fitting in”

Cleveland Cavaliers Big Three

National Basketball Association teammates are together quite often. Not as often as those in the Major League Baseball, necessarily but playing games four nights a week while adding in practice and shootarounds leads to 15 players seeing an awful lot of one another.
