Timofey Mozgov is no longer with the Cavaliers but he is carrying the team’s locker room mascot with him to his new home in Los Angeles.

The Russian center signed with the Lakers on Friday and did so while wearing a shirt featuring “Lil’ Kev”, the Tommy Bahama model who bares a striking resemblance to Kevin Love and became a clubhouse favorite among Cleveland players during their march to the team’s first championship.

Mozgov may be far away from his shirt’s inspiration next season but he is being paid handsomely by his new team with a four-year, $64 million dollar deal.
