Kevin Love may have reached his breaking point.

The Athletic reports that during a Saturday shootaround, the Cavaliers All-Star had an "emotional verbal outburst" directed at Cleveland general manager Koby Altman. Sources told the outlet Love was shouting at the GM in front of his teammates, coaches, and front offices members, while "expressing his displeasure and disgust with the organization." At one point during the outburst, Love reportedly yelled there is "no feel here."

It's also worth noting that Love posted an Instagram photo of Joaquin Phoenix's Joker, along with the caption "mood," which could be in response to his earlier actions.

The report comes shortly after Love was fine $1,000 for another outburst during the Cav's 117-97 loss to Toronto this week. Love was seen slapping chairs on the bench in the third quarter and reportedly asked a coach to remove him from the game. The Athletic reporters Joe Vardon and Shams Charania say Love "disagreed with the fine." 

But sources say this isn't the first time Love has had a heated exchange with Altman. According to The Athletic, Altman threatened to fine Love at the end of last season, after the forward raised his voice toward him. Love reportedly responded, "Go ahead. I have plenty of money."

Love's frustration was also evident in Saturday's game against the Thunder, when he was seen aggressively demanding the ball from Collin Sexton toward the end of the second quarter.

He later cleared the air on his IG, saying he loves his teammates.


Love signed a four-year, $120 million extension with the Cavaliers in 2018, after LeBron James left Cleveland for the Lakers. Insiders have claimed that Love has indicated his desire to be traded, rather than rebuild the team. However, he has yet to publicly confirm the reports.
