Saturday at Cavaliers shootaround, Kevin Love reportedly blew up at team GM Koby Altman, venting his frustration and anger with the organization. Then during the game Saturday night, Love’s frustration with Collin Sexton pounding the ball out beyond the arc seemed to boil over.

Love took to Instagram after the game to say we’re all reading it wrong, he loves Collin Sexton and his teammates.
Love has said his piece, although his actions Saturday speak louder about his mindset.
Love has every right to be frustrated with a team losing nearly every game, plus playing with a rookie point guard can be hard on veterans. Love also signed a four-year, $120 million contract extension that kicked in this season — he is being paid handsomely to put up with it and teach the next generation.
Love reportedly wants out of Cleveland and his name has come up in trade rumors, although that $120 million contract extension — which has three years remaining — has proven a sticking point. There has been some buzz the deal may get done, but it still is a longshot.
This means Kevin Love needs to do more than post on IG about how much he loves his teammates. Actions speak louder than words.
