Default Re: Is Kevin Love worthy of a max-level deal?

I errr.....Love his game and attitude but I wouldn't give him a max deal, just something close to one. Max deals should only be for guys who will lead your team in scoring.....your go-to guy, your closer....or at least your star point guard who makes everyone better and makes it easier to score.
Love is a #2 or #3 not a #1.....if there was no team salary cap and just a cap on individual salaries then yes, I would give him a max deal.

Obviously he means team wins in a season........no playoffs, just a ton of losses and few wins.

Giving the max to a player that can't even lead his team to 30 wins?

That should go well

That is very close to the max for a FOUR year deal. it's just not the max in terms of length.



And LOL @ people using the Wolves record as for why he shouldnt be a max contract player. Looking at other contracts in the NBA, Love def deserves one. Look at what he's doing. People say he's only a jumpshooter, I've seen him make a NUMBER of moves down low so far this year. Hook shots, baseline faders, falling away one handed shots, etc.

Ahh yes this meaningless argument made by people who have simple minds.

Kevin Durant led his team to 23 wins until he got some talent around his team.
A prime Kobe Bryant couldn't even make the play offs one year!
Deron Williams sure is turning the Nets into a contender.

Definitely. Kevin love is the type of player that could fit on any team.

I'm convinced that people who hate on Kevin Love just haven't watched him play.

Yes. If Westbrook got 5 years 78 million then Kevin Love should get a max extension.
