Holy hell, hot damn, is ol' Proctor off his rocker?  I know, number five seems too high for an oft-injured guy that plays for an annual lottery pick team.  But this is purely a numbers and a "I think he is cool" selection. Last season Kevin Love only played 18 games so let's throw that out and look at his two prior seasons:

Season    Age   MP  FG%  3P%  FT%  TRB AST STL BLK TOV  PF  PTS
2010-11    22 35.8 .470 .417 .850 15.2 2.5 0.6 0.4 2.1 2.0 20.2
2011-12    23 39.0 .448 .372 .824 13.3 2.0 0.9 0.5 2.3 2.8 26.0

26 and 13 is pretty damn impressive.  Also in 11-12 Kevin Love had a Player Efficiency
Rating of 25.4 and a win shares of 10.0, both good for 4th in the league.  So, according to       advanced metrics at least, Kevin Love is appropriately ranked here.

But besides all the numbers, I just flat out like his game and him in general.  I think that the T-Wolves are on  the verge of the playoffs this year and I predict a first team all NBA selection for Mr. Love.

Disclaimer:  The Falls City beer that qualifies as a "Cheap American Beer" is gone (RIP).  This is a dedication ranking to that beer that we all loved so much.  All though the new "original" Falls City is delicious (Check it out), it does not qualify for the rankings.

There is nothing quite like arriving at 8 AM for an afternoon U of L Cardinals football game tailgate and having a dozen Falls Shitty cans for breakfast.  Hell, the same could be said for tailgates any time, including Thursday night games which, back when Falls City was still around, it seemed like U of L was playing all the time.  The flavor was surprisingly average and the drinkability was off the charts, they flowed like the Mighty Mississippi after a day long storm.  Plus a 24 pack came in a "suitcase" package which is the greatest beer packaging of all.  
So, here is to a legend, may you Rest in Peace and may the new Falls City reduce itself in price and quality so that we may enjoy it as it should be in all of its glory.
