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.
he should be insulted by the 4 year $60 mill they're supposedly going to offer him...
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.
