He's gone but not forgotten. Kevin Love's six-year career in Minnesota came to an end Saturday when the Timberwolves traded him to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Love will wear a different number on his Cavaliers jersey. Hint: it's the same number of playoff appearances he made with the Wolves.

ProBasketballTalk.com created "Jersey Zero Power Rankings." Love isn't No. 1 on the list. That spot belongs to his former UCLA teammate Russell Westbrook.

Love wore No. 42 with the Wolves. Ironically, Love was traded to the Cavs 42 days after LeBron James announced his homecoming to Cleveland. King James is quite excited to play with Love.

Minnesota got a sweet return for Love, acquiring Andrew Wiggins and Anthony Bennett from Cleveland and Thaddeus Young from Philadelphia. Those fresh faces will be introduced at the State Fair on Tuesday.

Love was an awesome Wolf. His final season in Minnesota didn't feature a run to the playoffs, but he did accomplish something no NBA player had done since Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Bob McAdoo in 1975-76 – average 26 points, 12 rebounds and four assists per game. The Cavs' website is all over that stat.
