Today Kevin Wesley Love of the Cleveland Cavaliers enjoys his 27th birthday. Still rehabbing from his injury during the NBA Playoffs, the versatile power forward re-signed with the Cavs in hopes of helping the team to their first championship. Over his career Love has continued to grow his game making him a threat from the outside as well as grabbing plenty of boards. Just like the versatility in his basketball skills, his sneaker game has changed up over the years as well. When we saw him in college, during his time at UCLA with Russell Westbrook, he was in adidas thanks to the college’s contract.
When he first joined the league he was sporting Nike and random models for a few years. But the big change came during his third season in the league when he was signed with Peak. At the time the brand was still somewhat new to the NBA and had a few players in Houston so seeing Peak in Minnesota was a surprise. However, that partnership was short lived as offseason, after he broke the NBA’s double-double record, he was in another brand. He was spotted in random Nike’s once again but the surprise was when he was seen in 361 Degree.
One of two big-named basketball stars with 361, the other being Stephon Marbury (yes that Stephon Marbury), Love has stuck with the brand with his final years in Minnesota and now in Cleveland. With 361 on his feet Love is hoping to win a NBA championship and make his way onto the 2016 Team USA team. With his skill set we wouldn’t bet against the All-Star forward.
