Cleveland Cavaliers Kevin Love embraced his first season on the bench

Cavaliers veteran forward Kevin Love finished second in the voting for the NBA's Sixth Man of the Year award.

Cavaliers’ five-time All-Star forward Kevin Love taught his younger teammates about sacrifice when he accepted a move to the bench before the start of the 2021-22 season.

Love did not receive the league’s highest award for his decision, with the NBA announcing on Tuesday that Tyler Herro of the Miami Heat had been named the 2022 Sixth Man of the Year.

Love finished second in the voting of 100 global sportswriters and broadcasters. Cam Johnson of the Phoenix Suns was third.

Love totaled 214 points (three first-place votes). Herro received 488 points (96 first-place votes) and Johnson 128 points (1). Five points were given for a first-place vote, three for a second, and one for a third.

A member of the Cavaliers has never won the award, which dates back to 1982-83.
