Bad singer LeBron James performs 'Happy Birthday' for Kevin Love's Sports Illustrated cover

Wednesday September 7th, 2016

Cavaliers forward Kevin Love turned 28 on Wednesday, and his teammate, LeBron James, thought he'd sing him a rather touching rendition of 'Happy Birthday' to make his day.

Somehow, James unearthed a cover of Sports Illustrated from back in Love's playing days with the UCLA Bruins, pointed his smartphone at it, hit record, and belted out some shaky vocals.

I almost cried at the beauty of this. LeBron, who has totally subtweeted Love before, is doing acknowledging his birthday.

He really should have sung the song to Lil' Kev. Oh well.
