Last night, Frank Isola of The New York Daily News claimed that LeBron James was pushing the Cavs management to trade Kevin Love for his buddy Carmelo Anthony.
The report came out right before the tipoff of Cleveland's nationally televised game against the Washington Wizards.
Once the action started Kevin Love did everything he could do to prove such a trade would be a bad idea.
The power forward scored 39 points and pulled down 12 boards in the Cavs 140-135 overtime win. He also helped force OT with this full court pass to James:

After the game, James's angrily denied trying to dump Love for Melo.

I saw it, I heard about it, it's trash," James said of the trade rumor. "And the guy who wrote about it is trash too."This comes a week after James blasted Charles Barkley for comments he made about him on TNT.
It seems like King James is mad as hell and isn't going to take it from (the media) anymore.
