DOWNTOWN CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

New season. New rings (soon to be delivered). New championship banner (soon to be unveiled). Same story for Kevin Love.

There have been rumors that the Cavaliers are considering trades with Atlanta, Oklahoma City, and the Los Angeles Lakers for Love. So on Friday, Love had a strong reaction.

"They'll never be gone," Love told reporters following practice at Cleveland Clinic Courts. "That's just something that you live with. We have so much hype and media and the good and the bad surrounding this team and it just comes with the territory. So, I love this team, love the coaching staff, my teammates, the organization. I mean, I don't think it will ever leave but frankly, I don't really give a s---."

LeBron James wouldn't be surprised by that reaction. He doesn't believe his teammate is rattled by the rumors.

"He's the same Kev to me," James said. "Maybe he's different to you guys because you guys bring up that notion (of how he fits in), no one wants to hear that right now. He's a huge piece to our team, he's one of our Big Three, and when we all perform well, you see what happens. You see in Game 7 when we all came to play, played at a high level, so we was able to bring that home."
