How DeRozan, Love Have Already Impacted Conversation On Mental Health

Kevin Love felt a pain in his stomach and shortness of breath before he realized he was having a panic attack. The 29-year-old five-time All Star had never experienced such an episode 'Came out of nowhere': Kevin Love reveals battle with panic attacks, opens up about mental health

It was something Love did not think he needed to do until the 29-year-old suffered a panic attack during the middle of a game against the Atlanta Hawks on November 5.

Before Tuesday night's game against Brooklyn, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr lauded Cavaliers forward Kevin Love for his first-person piece on mental health.

In the short time I've been meeting with the therapist, I've seen the power of saying things out loud in a setting like that. Doing my own research, I realized that Love likely was keeping his issues under wraps because they were serious.

What Kevin Love and DeMar DeRozan are speaking on is a truth that transcends any income bracket, quality of life, or circumstance. It's just, we're human beings, so I appreciate him coming out. People don't talk about mental health enough and DeRozan and Love have recognized that needs to change.

An estimated 2.7 percent of American adults had panic disorder in the past year, while an estimated 4.7 percent of American adults experience panic disorder at some time in their lives, according to the National Institute of Mental Health.

In the worst few moments sitting on the bench disorientated, and later while in the team training room, Love remembers feeling like his body was telling him, "You're going to die".

'It's not nothing I'm against or ashamed of, ' he said. "I didn't even know if they were real", Love wrote. Love then reportedly came clean about his panic attacks.

Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love reacts to a foul call during the second half against the Chicago Bulls on December 21 at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland. And like many people who have had them, Love didn't know what was going on at first.

"Then came the panic attack", the 29-year-old five-time All-Star wrote. I want to share some of my thoughts about my panic attack and what's happened since.

"I had buried those emotions since her passing and said to myself, I have to focus on basketball".

A previous time Love explained a panic attack, it wasn't as well-received. "I'm trying to be good to the people in my life". I think he could sense something was wrong and blurted something like, 'I'll be right back, ' and I ran back to the locker room. And it doesn't matter if you're an National Basketball Association player or the average guy.

On the other hand, not everyone is completely understanding of mental-health issues - especially in professional sports, which Love examines in his article. In a competitive culture where mental obstacles can be perceived as weakness, and keeping problems to one's self is commonplace, it takes courage to speak.
