Big 4 stats, finals only:
Garnett - 18.2 ppg / 13 reb / 3 ast / 1.7 stl / 1 blk / 2.7 to on 42.9 fg% / 76 ft%
Rondo - 9.3 ppg / 3.8 reb / 6.7 ast / 1.5 stl / .5 blk / 1.5 to on 37.7 fg% / 59.3 ft%
Pierce - 21.8 ppg / 4.5 reb / 6.3 ast / 1.2 stl / .3 blk / 3.7 to on 43.2 fg% / 39.3 3pt% / 83 ft%
Ray - 20.3 ppg / 5 reb / 2.5 ast / 1.3 stl / .7 blk / 1.8 to on 50.7 fg% / 52.4 3pt% / 86.7 ft%
I'd still give it to KG... Plus I think KG was the leader of the Celtics in scoring through all the playoffs that year.
With those numbers and being the true defensive anchor, I concur, KG should have won.
But still, Raygun with the 52% threes? I think his line is better than Pierce's and he didn't lay an egg in one of the games like Pierce did.
