Kevin Love’s much maligned terribleness on defense is far overstated. Also, enough with this advanced analytics attitude bullshit. Love is a better player, full stop. Does it really matter that KP gives you a better bang for your buck when: 1. You are looking to beat the Warriors, not build for the future, and 2. Because of the team’s other contracts, it does not matter how great of a value KP is, because they can’t sign anyone else anyway.
You don’t always need to find the best value, sometimes common sense should rule the day.
