Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love has added another cool piece to his Attitude Era collection.
The 5-time NBA All-Star, who could be on the move this summer, is a longtime "Stone Cold" Steve Austin fan and has continued to show his love for the former WWE superstar by purchasing a $15,000 custom-made diamond pendant of the Texas Rattlesnake's signature “Smoking Skull” logo.
Why is this important? Well WWE held the development in high enough regard to report it on their official website, so we're doing it too. Plus anything involving Stone Cold or pendants is worth reporting.
"Cleveland Cavaliers star Kevin Love added a new meaning to “Stunning” this week, picking up a diamond-encrusted tribute to WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin that merits its own glass-shattering entrance theme," the company stated on their website this Thursday.
The 14-karat white gold pendant, covered in seven-karat diamonds, was made by Greg Gunya and Jason "J-Frost" Adams in New York City. It has been endorsed by Austin himself, who took to Instagram to admire the artwork and stamp his seal of approval.
Love, meanwhile, grew up when the Attitude Era was in full swing, with the likes of Stone Cold, The Rock, The Undertaker, Triple H and Mankind making history with some of the most intense matches ever.
The 30-year-old met and posed for a photo with Taker ahead of an NBA game in 2016 in commemoration of the Cavs' championship win.
Love barely played for the Cavs last season, which in addition to losing LeBron James was a huge blow for the team. Having signed a $120 million, four-year deal prior to the start of the campaign, he suffered a foot injury after making just four appearances. He returned in February after missing 50 games, but of course, it was way too late by then.
