Love Declares Himself Best Power Forward, Won't Commit To Signing Max Deal With Wolves
In an interview with 1500ESPN.com, Kevin Love was asked to pick the better power forward between he and Blake Griffin.
“I believe I'm the best '4' in the league,” he said. “I think you have to believe that you're the best. I think Mohammad Ali even said, 'I was the greatest before I knew I was.' I think everybody needs to have that mindset. That's part of winning the mind game from the very start. You have to believe it. You have to hold yourself accountable."
Love, 23, also touched on the possibility of the Wolves offering a maximum contract that would pay him as much as $80 million over five years.
“I don't know,” he said. “I don't know the answer to that at this point. It's all in my agent's (Jeff Schwartz) hands. People can speculate and say what they want, but I will just go out there, play basketball, and help this team win.”
While he wouldn't commit to signing an extension if the opportunity presented itself, Love also didn't rule out staying in Minnesota.
“I just don't know what I am going to do,” he said. “I'm happy to be a Timberwolf at this point and happy we're winning games.”
