Per 1500 ESPN's Nate Sandell, Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love broke a franchise record for most points in a season Monday, pouring in 40 against the Golden State Warriors to bring his season-long total to 1,991 points.
Garnett, widely acknowledged as the best player in franchise history, played all 82 games during his record-setting season, averaging 24.2 points per contest.
Love, a clear choice as the second-best player in franchise history, needed just 76 games to break Garnett's record, as the former UCLA Bruin is averaging 26.2 points per game.
Of course, a comparison of their respective record-setting seasons shouldn't just be about points, and Garnett's '03-04 campaign bested Love's current one in terms of team success.
This year's Timberwolves sit at 40-41 with one game remaining, well out of the Western Conference playoff picture. Owners of the NBA's longest ongoing playoff drought, The T-Wolves will miss out on postseason basketball for a ninth consecutive year.
Love is already a better stat compiler than KG ever was, but it's getting harder and harder to ignore the fact that he still hasn't played in a playoff game.
