Per Elias, the only plyr in the last 15 yrs that had more pts & reb in a single month than Love (469/211) was Shaq (499/218) in March 2001.

In all honesty, I don't think it is stretch to say Kevin Love is a top 5 player in the NBA.

Love is playing at an MVP level this season. To bad Rubio went down as i could see this team easily being a 5-6 seed with Rubio. Rubio comes back 100%, and there is only good things to come for this franchise in the next 5-8 years. :thumbsup:

Unless their idiocy of "saving" the 5 year extension bites them in the ####.

I don't understand, what did they save?

I am excited for this team, I hope Rubio comes back 100% next season. I like Pekovic and Williams too.

Under the new CBA, contracts are limited to 4 years with each team allowed to sign one player to a 5 year deal. Love expected to be designated for the 5 year deal, but the Wolves decided not to. Love wasn't happy and demanded (and got) an out after 3 years.
