The Cleveland Cavaliers are playoff bound, but the drama between Kevin Love and LeBron James hit expert trolling levels on Wednesday night.
LeBron James may not be the MVP this season, but he’s the most valuable troll that the NBA has to offer. There are players who engage in hijinks to lighten up the game and players who try to have fun with the media — then there’s what LeBron James just did.
In what can only be described as a mic drop troll to end all trolls, LeBron James told the media that he believes Kevin Love is the MVP this year and he’s who would get his vote this summer.
Jason Lloyd from the Akron Beacon Journal was the one who promoted the question, and LeBron James dropped the troll mic by saying that his MVP pick is Kevin Love.
That’s expert level trolling. That’s an Inception style troll that serves as a troll inside of a troll inside of another troll.

Who is LeBron James trolling with this little comment?
On the one hand, it appears that the comment is directed at Kevin Love for not picking LeBron James as the MVP when asked earlier this season. It was a moment that sparked massive controversy and has since caused the media to foam at the mouth anytime Love or LeBron are mentioned in the same sentence.
Then again, this could be a troll directed at the media, who made so much out of Love’s initial comments about LeBron James not being the the MVP. After that comments was made, and even before then, the media was stoking coals with the relationship between Love and LeBron for most of the season.
When Love told the world that he didn’t think LeBron James was the MVP, it was game over from there.
Of course, LeBron James called Kevin Love out earlier this season on Twitter for not fitting in with the team
That’s a tweet that LeBron James admitted was pointed at Love, and if he gave explanation for that comment then maybe we can hold out hope that this one will be explained too. Then again, not knowing who just got trolled is half the fun.
