LeBron James jokes Kevin Love should be MVP, laughter ensues

Thursday April 16th, 2015

Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James is considered an MVP candidate this season, and last week he said he would vote for himself for MVP. 

On Wednesday, LeBron was asked again who he would choose for MVP, and he responded in jest by selecting one of his teammates: Kevin Love. 

Love is having his worst statistical season since 2009-10, so he probably won't be getting many more MVP votes, even as a joke.

Last month, Love said that he would back Russell Westbrook for NBA MVP if he had a vote. 

This is kind of awkward
