Best Timberwolves Player

Kevin Love

The 2013-14 Timberwolves season may have been a disappointment, but Kevin Love's play was anything but. The sixth-year forward (can you believe he's been in the league that long?) continues to get better and better, culminating in his first-ever selection as an All-Star starter. Bottom line: When healthy, he's easily the best player employed at 600 First Avenue since a certain number 21. But T-Wolves fans should enjoy K-Love's unique blend of dead-eye shooting and rebounding while they can, because the Los Angeles native can opt out of his contract and become a free agent after next season, and the front office hasn't done a great job surrounding K-Love with greatness over the years. So if he doesn't sign an extension this offseason, our 2014 "Best Timberwolves Player" may become next year's "Best Trade Piece."
