Kevin Love wasn't bothered by the Timberwolves' video hyping the return of Mike Miller instead of him when the Cavaliers play in Minnesota on Saturday night – Love's first game at Target Center since being traded to Cleveland in the off-season.
The video, which went viral on Thursday, builds the drama by introducing LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, J.R. Smith, Shawn Marion, Timofey Mozgov, Matthew Dellavedova before transitioning to "And the return of Mike Miller." Love's name doesn't get a sniff in the video. But the former Wolves' All-Star (sorry, Love didn't make it on the Eastern Conference All-Star team this season), wasn't offended.
“That’s hilarious. I thought it was really funny because Mike (Miller) is one of those guys every day he wakes up it’s sunshine and blue skies,” Love said Friday, according to Ohio.com. “More often than not, I have a pretty dry sense of humor. That was pretty good.”
Love admitted that he was waiting for the dramatic end of the video to feature his name.
"I was waiting for it, waiting for it and it turned to Mike Miller," he said with a laugh, as reported by Cleveland.com. "That was pretty good."
As for his return Minnesota, Love said fans will "have a chance to tell me how they really feel" – and he expects to be booed.
Fans may not get a chance to see LeBron James play on Friday. He's battling a sprained wrist.
