"We'll wait and see what happens," Love said. "But between now and the 25th something will happen. Either something will happen positive or something will happen negative."

Love was asked what would happen if no extension is signed.

"It wouldn't be ideal," Love said. "So it would be nice to work something out. I enjoy it here, I enjoy my teammates, I enjoy the coaching staff, I enjoy the Twin Cities, even when it's cold.


"I figure if I keep playing my game, playing hard-nosed basketball, playing the way I'm supposed to play, everything will take care of itself."

Good to hear

Don't bother they will only say he has no help but they are forgetting he has no impact, look at LBJ and Howard no help and they got their team to the finals. LBJ and Howard are max contract players Kevin love? no.

He not the kind of player id want to give a max contract but you cant justify not giving it to him when you see what players on his level get paid. You dont need to be a top player to get a max deal. Hard to say Antawn Jamison gets one but not Love. Hes not my idea of a best of the best of the best player who I think the max is made for....but when Troy Murphy makes like 12 million some years you cant offer Love 10.

Troy averaged 12 mills a year in his last year his starting salary was at 7-8 millions, and that is not too much for a guy that averaged 14ppg/12rpg on 34 minutes, not saying he was worth that much but it's not like he sucked like now.

It's the fault of the owners. Once they began overvaluing
average talent, the good players got near max and the great players got max.

Unfortunately, that means the top 10 players are equal in salary to the top 40.

It's the fault of basketball teams having very few players and big revenue.

The question is how many players in the league deserve a max deal.

10?

15?

20?

Kevin Love is easily a top ten player this year....so, yeah he does. If Love doesn't deserve it, there's what 2 maybe three players who do?

I never said Love doesn't deserve it. Kevin Love definitely does deserve a max level.

Based of his insane production and how competitive the T-Wolves were this year before the injury to Rubio and then even Pek for a lil, I think he more than deserves a max.


If Rubio doesn't go down I think the Wolves are fighting for the 8th seed all the way til the last week of the regular season.

If Rubio doesn't go down, the Wolves are fighting for the 6th seed, not the 8th seed. Before Rubio went down, the Wolves were tied for 7th and a half game behind 5th.



Btw, this thread is still stupid. Love is a top 5 player in the NBA.

Haven't max deals screwed a lot of teams' chances to win it all because there had troubles dealing with other players' contracts and free agent signings? KG in Minnesota is somewhat one.
