Kevin Love is the best player in the world. Real All-Star. Stats don't tell a lie.

(except that his opponents have cleared the bench in the 3rd, and he finally scores some baskets against the other teams scrubs, due to the fact that his team is losing by 30)

You gotta watch a dude's game before rendering his stat line as a measuring tool.
Shane Battier for instance is a carreer 9, 4 and 2 guy. But what you can't see is when he hits those baskets. And you don't get stats for playing a pest in passing lanes, and shutting down the dribbling lanes. But if you ask any coach in this league if they want Battier in their lineup, and you'd hear a resounding YES.
