Love had to show mental toughness and continue to give an good effort while he was battling his symptoms.
Wow…I can't even describe how grateful I am for the love and support. More than anything, it's been amazing to see YOU tell your own stories about Mental Health. Let's keep it going. If want to share your story you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org (yes I'll read it).

“I was deflecting because I didn’t want anybody to know,” Love said on HBO series The Shop. “There’s such a stigma around it. But now, I have this saying: ‘Only by admitting who you are do you get what you want.’ So I played all my cards and just said, ‘This is what you get.’ But in that time, until you can admit what’s really going on, you’re in such a hole that you have blinders on. I thought, ‘I don’t want anybody else to tell my story.'”
Last season Kevin Love averaged 17.0 ppg, 10.9 & 2.2 assists for the Cavs.
