CJ McCollum praises Kevin Love for paying for arena workers when it was ‘not his responsibility’

Portland Trail Blazers shooting guard CJ McCollum says Cleveland Cavaliers star Kevin Love is just a good-hearted human being.

Love donated $100,000 for all Cavs team workers after the NBA suspended the season due to COVID-19. A bunch of team owners and players followed suit, including the Blazers and McCollum.

During an interview with David Aldridge of The Athletic, McCollum praised Love for being the first player to pay for arena workers when it was “not his responsibility.”

“It kind of shows who he is as a person, to his character, to his core,” CJ McCollum said about Kevin Love.

“Do I think he should have to do something like that? I don’t think he should have to do anything. It’s not his responsibility. It shows he’s a good-hearted human being.”

The Cavs forward has been at the forefront of mental health and sharing his personal story with others so he can be helpful to people. This latest act was just the cherry on top of Love’s cake of selflessness.

Cleveland had the worst record in the Eastern Conference before the season was suspended. The Cavs were just 19-46.

Love was averaging 17.6 points, 9.8 rebounds and 3.2 assists for the Cavs in 56 games. The five-time All-Star and one-time NBA champion was also shooting 45.0 percent from the field, 37.4 percent from beyond the arc and 85.4 percent from the free-throw line.
