I'd like to see us lock him up for 5 or 6 years, and I think $4MM is likely what he'll get, but paying him based on a pro-rated stat isn't smart. We should know by now that you have to look at the entire body of work, not just the players best season(s).
Fair enough, and with most players, I'd agree with you. But with Callahan's work ethic, I don't see him dropping off. I don't see this season as a fluke, but rather a natural progression.

Yes, injuries could be a concern. If he continues to score at a 60+ point pace, but never actually reaches 60 points because of injuries, then we aren't getting full value for our money.
