On Thursday, Kevin Love was selected as a reserve for the Eastern Conference in the 2017 NBA All-Star game. 

Love will join LeBron James and Kyrie Irving on the roster, marking the third time three Cavaliers players have been selected for the game - the last time with Brad Daugherty, Larry Nance and Mark Price in 1993. 

The 2017 game will be Love's fourth appearance in the All-Star game, after he was a reserve in 2011 and a starter in 2014. 

The Cavs currently lead the Eastern Conference with a record of 30-14. The 2017 All-Star game will take place on February 19 at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans.
