Fans of Kevin Love can now see a different side of the Cleveland Cavaliers forward. Love is featured, as well as on the cover, in ESPN The Magazine's seventh annual "Body Issue." The issue is available online Monday, July 6.
"It is funny, I should say that I ended up in the body issue. I didn't see this when I was young. When I was young I ate everything that came my way," said Love.
Love was heavier during his earlier playing days before the NBA. He says when he got to the NBA he realized 82 games really take a toll on the body.
"I've really put in some work and this is a big transformation for me," said Love.
At 6'10" 230 pounds the three-time NBA All-Star has used proper nutrition, weight-lifting and yoga to change his body and his way of life.
