Kevin Love took to his Instagram page Sunday morning to give a heartfelt tribute to “the best teammate I ever had,” James Jones.
Much criticized during the past two years with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Love attributes his ability to stay grounded to Jones’ guiding hand. He also made it clear that his outstanding performance during Game 7 to help the Cavs win their NBA title over the Golden State Warriors had a lot to do with Jones’ influence.
Jones is one of Cleveland’s forgotten men, thanks to the fact he played a total of 55 minutes in the 21 playoff games. Yet, as Love reminds us, he was with LeBron James the past six years when they both made the NBA Finals each season, winning three titles.
