This often reflects differing health capacities, but it can also illustrate that the one champion has less agility and thus is unable to kite away from further damage when poked or engaged.

Ziggs typically tallies fewer minion kills than Sivir. Champs that don't get a lot of minion kills normally don't have to have much CS to be useful.
