    If Morey had drafted Kwahi, the Rockets would have Kevin Love right now.

    Honestly, that wouldn't even be that much of an over-payment. Even if he does underperform for that max contract, his salary won't look that bad after the new TV deal kicks in.

    ^Also, the guy might not be putting big numbers just yet, but he's a very solid defender and is improving his offensive repertoire each year. Did I mention he's a Finals MVP?

    13ppg/6rpg/2apg/2spg in 29mpg on the Spurs would probably translate into something like 20ppg/8.5rpg/4apg/2.5spg on a weaker playoff team.

    With all the other wings pushing for maxes, and getting them, why wouldn't he?

    ^ Bingo, he's probably the one (young) SF I wouldn't hesitate to give the max

    He's nuts. He's easy replaceable. Spurs system made him look good.

    i think he is over rated, he had three awesome games last season(in the finals) and really hasn't lived up to the hype he had going in to last season

    Yikes.

    3 players in the history of the NBA have put up those numbers one season each in their careers.

    Magic, Pippen and McGinnis.

    Let's calm down a bit.

    Not really a fair assessment because their best players never seem to leave.

    When you look how other wings get paid, he definitely deserves it. Great defender&athlete and huge upside, already Finals MVP and showing an allround-game.

    Also, people have to remember that the new TV deal will increase the cap significantly, a current max for Kawhi will be a bargain in a few years.

    Exactly... Leonard went through Batum, Durant and Lebron. Parsons couldn't even get past Batum.
