Remember when a lot of people felt he might bolt if he Clips didn't get better? Instead he got exactly what Love is looking for as far as the team improving goes, and he must be loving it.

Anyone who thought he'd bolt is pretty silly, at least if they thought he'd bolt soon. As Moremilk and I have pointed out a bajillion times, when a max player comes off the rookie contract they're an RFA. There is nothing to negotiate money wise because they are a max player and everyone agrees. They can't leave because the drafting team will just match. The only way to leave is to play out the qualifying year which is extremely risky, because an injury could cost tens of millions in guaranteed money.

When max money is offered, no RFA has ever left the team that drafted him. Zero. They always sign the extension.

As for Love, seriously. Where is Mnny's Chris Paul? What players are realistic targets for Minny? What trade is Minny failing to make?

Furthermore, should Minny be trading Rubio and Pekovic? Because that's what it would take to make a splash like acquiring Paul. It could be that you should be comparing Minny to the OKC model, not the Clipper model, since Pekovic and Rubio might have all-star potential.

^ that means that Anthony Davis will play instead of him right? JV vs AD in the olympics would be very interesting!
