The crazy thing is Trout will miss 6–8 weeks, come back, and still be in the top 10 in WAR even after all that time. His season stats might still measure up even without those 30–40 games. Maybe absence really does make the heart grow fonder — or at least appreciate the dominance all the more.
The Kevin Love line is actually comical. I imagine only four players have scored 27 on 7 shots because usually if you’re averaging four points a shot, you keep getting fed the ball. Not Love. And sure he had those four straight post ups, but that leaves 3 shots the other 46 minutes! Take that for data.
