This is not a point that needs proving. Kevin Garnett was the 2004 NBA MVP, so I stuck his 2003-2004 season into the 2016 radar machine to see how peak KG would translate into current terms.
Regardless of season, those numbers are totally obscene. Considering that his peak was during a slower, more defensive era makes the scoring even more impressive. The assist ratio would still be in the top 20% of forwards last season, and he would have led the league in rebounding. It’s not that people retroactively underestimate Garnett, it’s just astounding how well his numbers would stand for themselves even in a more hyperactive NBA environment. He speaks for himself, and his numbers ring clear.
