In losing to the Golden State Warriors in the 2015 NBA Finals, the Cleveland Cavaliers could taste how close they were to the franchise’s first-ever championship. So they went out the next season and worked hard at becoming a more complete unit. Every man dedicated himself to the cause. Every player committed himself to his teammates. The Cavaliers of the 2015-16 season personified the idea that the whole is always greater than the sum of its parts. Playing the stretch 4 position with an impressive mix of all-around talent and toughness was Kevin Love, the 6-foot-10 forward who can shoot from anywhere on the court. He came within five total rebounds of averaging a double-double in the regular season as he finished in the top 10 in rebounds for the sixth time in eight seasons. Love came up clutch in many instances in the postseason as the Cavs overcame a 3-1 deficit against the defending champion Golden State Warriors in the Finals to post their first-ever championship. To honor the franchise’s first NBA Finals title, Upper Deck Authenticated has produced this autographed authentic jersey with a one-of-kind logo patch sewn onto the back. Featuring the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy as the backdrop, this uniquely designed logo celebrates the Cavs’ first NBA Finals title. Love has signed this Adidas Swingman Cleveland Cavaliers away jersey in black paint pen. His signature is deemed authentic by virtue of Upper Deck Authenticated’s Five Step Process.
