Kevin Love celebrated his first NBA title with the Cleveland Cavaliers a little differently than his teammates in the locker room on Sunday night.
Wearing an “Austin 3:16” shirt and a WWE championship belt around his waist, Love channeled his inner Stone Cold Steve Austin by smashing two beers over his head and chugging them just like the famous wrestler of the 90’s used to do.

While Love had just nine points in Game 7 against the Golden State Warriors, the Cavaliers forward pulled down 14 rebounds for his team and got a stop in the last thirty or so seconds to prevent Stephen Curry from knocking down a potential game-tying 3-pointer.
Love had been scrutinized for his lack of production during the Finals, but he did enough of the little things to help the Cavs win the game.
The bottom line is: Love is an NBA champion now.
