Before you all go ahead and ask for the offing of my head, take a seat and listen to why Kevin Love is the best power forward in the league.
In all honesty, the guy has everything you want in a forward.
He has an incredible rebounding ability, something that we haven't seen since the likes of Ben Wallace, or maybe even Dennis Rodman. In a remarkably unbelievable season, Love is averaging 15.8 rebounds per game. In fact, the only team he has failed to record a 10 rebound performance against is the Miami Heat. In all, he only has missed double digit boards in a handful of games.
He is also fifth among power forwards in scoring with 20.9 points per contest. This is a very telling statistic because it proves he can shoot. Another stat that will do the same is his amazing 42.9 percentage from beyond the arc, the best number out of anybody at the four spot and trailing only Caron Butler among forwards. His free throw percentage of 85.2 is second among power forwards, trailing only Dirk Nowitzki.
One thing that is misconstrued about Love is that he is a terrible defender. While he certainly is not a top notch guy on D, he only gives up .88 points per possession, an improvement over guys like Amar'e Stoudemire, who gives up a mediocre .99 points per.
Please don't give me this garbage that he would have worse numbers on a championship caliber team. Rebounds are rebounds, and on a team like the Lakers he would still be able to grab as many rebounds if given Pau Gasol's place. He still would shoot often, and drain often as well.
What else can I say about Love? He's the best rebounder in the game, he's a top 20 scorer, and he's the best three-point shooter among any power forward (sorry, Dirk).
Oh yeah, and he has 53 consecutive double-doubles, the post-merger record.
