Default Re: Kevin Love summary....

Also, simply blurting out stats without understanding meaning or context is just ignorant.

"FG% for a big man" is blatantly oversimplified. For a player like Love who plays the PF position one would expect his FG% to match that of other PFs.... but there are factors that could or would make it not the case.

For instance, Love takes much more three-pointers than your average PF/C. Even if he makes them at a good rate, that percentage is likely to be lower than the higher-percentage shots your average PF/C would take.... which would effectively lower his FG%.

If we're going to say he's an inefficient offensive player solely based on FG%, it should be compared to the FG% of other players that play like him, not the players at the same position.
