Kevin Love is an NBA champion (and the first teammate LeBron hugged)

Publish date:

The Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Golden State Warriors 93-89 Sunday night in game 7 of the NBA Finals – winning the NBA title after being down 3-1 in the series.

And of course that means former Timberwolf and Andrew Wiggins trade chip Kevin Love is now an NBA champion.

Love put up 9 points, 14 rebounds and 3 assists. But finished a game-high +19 for the night, and even played some clutch 1-on-1 defense against two-time MVP Steph Curry in the final minutes.

Love was also the first player LeBron hugged after the buzzer went off, so that's fun.
