The Cleveland Cavaliers don't need to swap Kevin Love for the NY Knicks' Carmelo Anthony. Love is four years younger than Anthony and is considered to be a better rebounder, defender, passer and scorer, according to Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com. Plus, it has taken time for the Cavs' players and coaches to shape Love into the team asset he is now, especially his rhythm with LeBron James. So trading him will be disruptive to the team's chemistry and playing abilities, says Fedor.
It makes sense for the Cleveland Cavaliers to trade Kevin Love for Carmelo Anthony. As LeBron James is getting worn down by so much play time, the Cavs would welcome having another 20-point shooter on its roster, writes Jared Mintz of Fanrag Sports Network. Mintz adds that Anthony's role on the team may not be immediately evident, but his good relationship with LeBron James will make the transition smooth on and off the court, which could help them get closer toward the championship.
