The most impressive stat I've heard all year is this: when Kevin is on the floor, Minnesota scores 14.3 more points per game than when he's on the pine. And they hold the opposition to 10.1 fewer points when he's out there, too. Call it the NBA's plus-minus rating and call KG's 24.4. Then call around -- call L.A. (Kobe: 11.1), call Jersey (Jason: 13.0), call Orlando (T-Mac: 10.7) -- you won't find anyone close.
Minnesota's 4th in the West, and that's with Wally missing 30 games, Anthony Peeler having an off year, and little other help. I think it's a no-brainer for KG.

I personally think that KG is best the all around player in the NBA. The stats award that D robinson used to own if they still have it around will definitely go to him bc he does it all. This being said u cant knock guards like TMAC and Kobe who can do it all.

Ben Wallace. If you look at the gloryhound offensive players, there is a tough race, so why not take the other half of the ball, which is just as if not more so important, and pick the head and shoulders player above everyone else.

Most (if not all) of the players mentioned play defense very well, and they also contribute heavily on the offensive side of the ball, making them more complete players, and less of a hindrance on one side.
