Article Summary:

“My intent wasn’t to disrespect the game,” Love said. The loose ball was grabbed by the Raptors, who made a 3-pointer and went on to win 112-96.

Video of the tantrum went viral on social media, and Love was blistered by fans and media for behavior called “Childish” and “Unacceptable.”

Love took exception to some of the criticism, saying he felt aspects of his behavior were “a little blown out of proportion.”

“I just hope that you judge my character, judge me as a man,” said Love, who helped the Cavaliers win an NBA title in 2016 and signed a four-year, $120 million contract extension two years later. ”

Before Wednesday’s game against Orlando, Bickerstaff said he had spoken to Love, who is in his seventh season with Cleveland.

The Cavaliers were missing seven players with injuries for the game, and Love’s outburst only compounded things for a young team stumbling to the season’s end.
