Statistically there's no doubt. If he signs a deal that's significantly under the max his agent should commit hara-kiri.

No doubt he is worth a max deal. He could be the face of the franchise for years to come, and with the current team assembled i don't see why they couldn't make some noise in the playoffs down the line a la OKC a few years ago.

If you compare him with other players who have received a max deal - then yes. Traditionally would I consider him a max level player? No.

No

I feel as though only superstars should get the max. We will probably give it to him to keep him though. He isn't a LeBron, Kobe, Durant or Rose where you can give them the ball and they will take over and win you the game.

Of course he is: top 4 PF at age 23 in a league of diminishing big-man talent.

If the T'Wolves don't, someone else will and they've been crap long enough. Don't start penny pinching now that you look like you've got the makings of a decent future.

I think Kevin Love's playoff performances speak for themselves.
