'Came out of nowhere': Kevin Love reveals battle with panic attacks, opens up about mental health
In a piece for The Player's Tribune - a publication for athletes by athletes - Kevin Love opened up about his struggles with anxiety, why he chose to share his story, and how it has unexpectedly affected his life.
The 29-year-old self-described introvert says that he had a panic attack following halftime of a November 5 game against the Atlanta Hawks. Love, 29, said that was part of his inspiration to open up about his own mental health. So I did one seemingly little thing that turned out to be a big thing.
"I was having trouble catching my breath", wrote Love. I just never knew the severity of the issue. People don't talk about mental health enough and DeRozan and Love have recognized that needs to change.
Cleveland Cavaliers All-Star forward Kevin Love published an essay for The Player's Tribune today, titled "Everyone Is Going Through Something", in which he details a recent in-game panic attack and his thoughts about mental health.
"Everyone is going through something that we can't see", he said. It's like the playbook said - figure it out on your own, like everyone else around me always had. I know that, left untreated, mental illnesses can develop and worsen and even metastasize, cancer-like, from neuroses into full-blown psychoses. Love then reportedly came clean about his panic attacks.

He described his action as an effort to "save the country" and that he would not "prejudge" any group interested in peace. Amrullah Saleh, a former national intelligence chief, called the President's speech "a total appeasement to the enemy".
Not only did Love have a good reason for the events that led to the team meeting but he has one that allows the team to rally around him and further his standing as a team leader. Nor did most people outside of the organization.
Personally, I have never head a panic attack but I don't need to have one to know that it sounds awful.
A few muffled (or so I thought) gags later, it became apparent to those around me that something was up.
The 29-year-old said he couldn't stop thinking about it and was afraid people would find out.
"I had buried those emotions since her passing and said to myself, I have to focus on basketball". It's here as I type, wondering who might read this and immediately think less of me. But it was real - as real a broken hand or a sprained ankle. Love added that the Cavaliers connected him with a therapist after the November 5 incident. "So I'm not saying everyone should share all their deepest secrets - not everything should be public and it's every person's choice". He was drafted fifth overall in the 2008 NBA Draft by the Memphis Grizzlies, and his draft rights were traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves in a deal that involved several players and the third overall pick that year, O.J. Mayo.
