Turns out, Kevin Love was being straight with us all along. He had every intention of remaining "All In" with the Cavaliers, and Wednesday, on the
first day of NBA Free Agency, he proved it, agreeing to a five-year, $110 million max deal with the Cavs. This must have been interesting news to the Lakers, who began the day still believing they had a shot, and the Celtics, who were frantically still trying
to set up a meeting. Two storied franchises with star-studded, championship pasts. But for Love and the Cavaliers, it's all about the future, and the stars continue to shine in and around Cleveland.
 
To a man, the Cavaliers believe the championship parade would have been held here, in the 216, not in the Bay Area, if both Love and Kyrie Irving
were healthy. You could make the argument that still would have been the case if only one of 'em stayed healthy. Now they'll have another chance to prove that. Next year, and the year after, and the year after, and the year after that. These guys are
in it for the long haul. Which is why Love wasted no time announcing his decision. The only meeting he ended up taking in L.A. was the one with LeBron, poolside, last weekend. They talked about unfinished business, and Love admits, that helped seal the deal.

So the Cavaliers, already big winners in free agency, just by bringing back the key guys they already had. That'll be enough next season, although Dan Gilbert's not done spending,
his commitment as impressive as the players'. Wednesday was a very good day to be a Cavs fan. And it just keeps getting better and better.
