Cleveland Cavaliers power forward Kevin Love will wear No. 0 with his new team. His jersey is already for sale on the Cavs' official team shop.

It's safe to say that zero is back in vogue in the NBA. Some notable fellow No. 0s are Love's college teammate Russell Westbrook, Damian Lillard and Andre Drummond. I personally choose to give Gilbert Arenas the credit for starting this trend.

If you were wondering -- and of course you were -- the three previous Cavs to have worn No. 0 are Lari Ketner, who played 16 games in Cleveland in 2000, Jeff McInnis and C.J. Miles, per Basketball-Reference

So, if you wanted to, you could say that Kevin Love was the next Lari Ketner.
