Photos: This SI Swimsuit Model Is Dating An NBA All-Star

Kevin Love is one of the many star players currently sidelined from the NBA court with a broken hand. John Wall, Jimmy Butler, Kawhi Leonard and DeMarcus Cousins, among others, are also injured right now. The All-Star forward is likely going to be out for another four weeks or so.

Thankfully for Love, his life is pretty good off of the court. He's dating Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model Kate Bock.

Love, 29, and Bock, 25, have been dating for a year-plus. She spoke to SI.com about their relationship and how they make long distance work.

"Cleveland is only like an hour-long flight from New York. So I go back and forth between here and there and jobs, and then sometimes meet him on the road if it makes sense, so I see him pretty often even though we live in different cities and both travel for work. We make it work, so that’s kind of fun," she said.

While Love is currently sidelined, Bock is in her busy season. The 25-year-old model is once again in this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue.

Bock has been making the media rounds and showing off her photos on social media. The supermodel has nearly 300K followers on Instagram.

Here are some photos from this year's issue:

Love and Bock celebrated the swimsuit model's birthday late last month. He wrote her a heartfelt note on Instagram.

"You are truly an amazing person. You bring light into so many peoples lives and deserve all the blessings you receive as a result. Thank you for being so strong, and thank you equally for being so damn funny!! Enjoy your special day. Sending so much love. "

The 2018 SI Swimsuit issue is out now.
