To me, picking points in a player's career to paint him in better light than his entire career does smacks more of stats-mongering than anything else.
It's not stats-mongering to my way of thinking to say he was an AT great bowler prior to an injury and merely a very good one thereafter. I'd say to solely judge a player's merit on their overall average devoid of context is closer to what I'd understand by the term.

"This is a clash of strategy. And of methods, culture and politics. This is a new-era rivalry. Not as ancient as the Ashes, or as passionate as India-Pakistan.

This brings together a belligerent bunch of brats, bullies and braggers." - Jarrod Kimber
