Kevin Love underwent arthroscopic surgery to remove a loose body from his left knee Tuesday morning.  As LeBron James previously said, the team is very top heavy; now they’ve lost one of their top tier players.  LeBron, however, isn’t worried.

NBA: LeBron James Calls Reporter ‘Trash’ for Writing He’s Pushing Carmelo Anthony/Kevin Love Trade

An initial report stated the New York Knicks were trying to trade Carmelo Anthony to the Cleveland Cavaliers for Kevin Love, but the Cavs turned the deal down as they were unwilling to part with Love whom they consider a big part of their success.  LeBron James responded to that report saying they have to play with who they have and can’t play ‘fantasy basketball.’  Monday another report was released saying the Melo/Love trade was possibly happening and LeBron was the person pushing for it.  This time LeBron’s response contained more fire.

NBA Report: Knicks Tried to Trade Carmelo Anthony but Cavs Had ‘No Interest’

So there are three things here. 1. Everyone remembers the big hoopla with the Knicks seemingly trying to oust Carmelo Anthony, but in a meeting with president Phil Jackson, Anthony reaffirmed his commitment to the team.  2. LeBron James recently went on an expletive-filled tirade about the Cavaliers needing a playmaker.  3. LeBron and Carmelo are really close friends who want to play together at some point in their careers.  So you put all that together and one would think sending Melo to the Cavs would be a go, but alas it is not.
