One Cleveland Cavaliers fan really does not want Kevin Love to play in Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night.

Giles Debenham has set up a GoFundMe page to raise money to pay Love to sit out of the crucial matchup.

“Kevin Love is playing like a bum and just taking up room on the court. Pay this man to take a seat and let the Cavs win these finals!!” Debenham wrote in the page’s description.


Debenham sort of has a point, though. Love scored just two points in the Cavaliers’ Game 5 win on Monday, while teammates LeBron James and Kyrie Irving scored a combined 82.

Debenham’s goal to raise $10 million by Game 6 is a bit optimistic considering no one has donated yet, but maybe Love should just take one for the team and stay on the bench.

The Golden State Warriors lead the series 3–2.
