Good afternoon, Boston Celtics fans!
Well, there’s no use being coy about today’s news:
Kevin Love traded to Cavs in 3-team deal. http://t.co/LrCrJam7Kw

Kevin Love is finally teaming up with LeBron James.
The Minnesota Timberwolves, Cleveland Cavaliers and Philadelphia 76ers completed a delayed blockbuster trade Saturday that’s been talked about for months and on hold for 30 days. Love, arguably the game’s best power forward, is headed from Minnesota to Cleveland, where he will join James and instantly make the Cavs an NBA title favorite, the two teams announced Saturday.
The Timberwolves are getting No. 1 overall pick Andrew Wiggins and former top pick Anthony Bennett from Cleveland and veteran forward Thaddeus Young from Philadelphia.
For those of you hoping that one of the parties would get cold feet, sorry to disappoint! But seriously, there was never any doubt that Love would get traded SOMEWHERE, and Minnesota only has itself to blame.
I’ll leave you, as always, with some Boston Celtics-related reading that projects who will be the Celtics’ MVP for the 2014-2015 season.
