Kevin Love Talks Mental Health, In-Game Panic Attack

In an inspiring trend, we are starting to hear more and more athletes talk open up about mental health. 

The latest to tackle mental health issues in a public forum is Cavaliers forward Kevin Love. 

Love recently wrote a piece for The Players Tribunein which he acknowledged being hospitalized earlier this season after having a panic attack. Love recalls a November 5th matchup with the Hawks, during which he experienced stomach pain and shortness of breath.

"It came out of nowhere. I'd never had one before," Love wrote. "I didn't even know if they were real. But it was real -- as real a broken hand or a sprained ankle. Since that day, almost everything about the way I think about my mental health has changed."
