Well, well, well. This is starting to look like the brief season will have some life in it!

Great Comeback! For a preseason game I love they still cared enough to come back 10 down with 2 mins to go. No reason this team cant be .500 this year. 33-33

Wolves team that gave up 110 points a game last year only gave up 84. Kudos to Adelman's emphasis on defense, a proven winner worth every single penny.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to read between the lines of Adelman's statement. If the Wolves can't re-sign KLove, then Adelman won't be sticking around.

Re-sign Love so he doesn't have a reason to become a FA. Money won't change how hard he works in the off season to become a better player for the Wolves. Rick Adelman, Kevin Love & Ricky Rubio are three big reasons this team has a GREAT future and Glen will have to spend the $$ to make sure those 3 are here for a long time.

I'm sorry but every time I hear about a Minnesota team signing a player to a maximum contract, Mauer's comes to mind. I hope they sign him but Mauer proves how big of a gamble it is in a small market like this.

Keep the guy. He's gotten better, the team as a whole is getting noticeably better, and Love is beginning to make the others around him better with his improved play.

Sign Love, he puts up better numbers than D Howard for crying out loud. And then trade Ricky for Marshon Brooks, let M Lee, Barea and Luke play the point. Looks like M Lee has what Ricky doesn't and we need a SG of the future.

You know, if it was last year, I would have said he was another Al Jefferson - only looked good because he was on such a bad team, especially after watching the All Star game and noting his lack of effort on the defensive side of the ball. That being said, I am truly impressed with the shape he showed up in and in watching the two games so far, the effort he has put out this year. I say give him his max contract and let's get this show on the road!

Come on both sides - let's work this out. I hope that Love stays here. However, with all this "big-money" being thrown around, I would have to wonder. How can some one make so much money?? How about this, why don't they sign him to a maximum contract and then Love can give me some of the money? He is a great player and I hope that stays..
