CLEVELAND, Ohio – “I do see it.”. That’s what Mark Price said when I asked about similarities between himself and current Cavs point guard Darius Garland.

When Bobby Cremins recruited Mark Price to Georgia Tech, maybe he had an idea of how good Price would be. Most fans simply had no clue. Well, the kid from Enid turned out pretty well. He had a brilliant career at Georgia Tech. Johnny Dawkins came in with a bigger reputation but Price won ACC Rookie Of The Year in 1983 and had a terrific career, really becoming the key player in Georgia Tech’s ascent to the top of the ACC.

Kevin Love stands alone atop a Cleveland franchise list. That’s right, Love has passed one other Cleveland Cavaliers great in Mark Price. Love took the spot of the Cavs player with the most made three-pointers in the franchise history on Sunday night. Love now stands alone in a rare category that LeBron James didn’t set himself.
Kevin Love was reverential and also deferential. The five-time All-Star wanted to pass Cavaliers legend Mark Price in a victory, which didn’t happen. Love was still stinging from two late misses in the Cavs’ 116-109 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans on Sunday night at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. But that did not obscure how honored Love felt to move into second place on the Cavs’ all-time 3-point list or the respect he feels for Price because of the disparity in the eras in which they played.
Since he was acquired via trade by the Cleveland Cavaliers from the Minnesota Timberwolves before the 2014-15 season, when he’s been in there, Kevin Love has been one of the game’s best perimeter shooting bigs. When LeBron James was with Cleveland for his return stint, Love was a key floor...
