In 2013 the Cleveland Cavaliers used the NBA Draft's first overall selection on Anthony Bennett. The UNLV product was coming off a serious shoulder injury, and no one was really sure how it would affect his game. As Bennett struggled to live up to his selection, many wondered what the shoulder did or didn't have to do with his play.
I think about that just about every time I think of Kevin Love, and, specifically, Kevin Love's season ending shoulder injury. It's way too early to know if Love will be uncomfortable when he comes back, if it will take him time to get his shot back. But according to Ramona Shelburne of ESPN, Love appears to be on track:
Kevin Love says he'll be back on the court in 7-10 days. Not sure yet when he can face full contact but should be ready for camp— Ramona Shelburne (@ramonashelburne) August 11, 2015
This is good news because it means he will have a bit over a month to get back on the court and work on his jump shot, get moving, and get himself in shape for training camp. In his letter explaining his commitment to the Cleveland Cavaliers, he wrote of unfinished business. Here's hoping he's at 100% as he and his team work to finish it.
It's also worth noting he said this at Team USA camp, which he is attending. They ask him to go to that because he's really good at basketball and helped his country win a gold medal a couple years ago.
