Umm, I don't see you put every other performance in "historical perspective" and try to water it down to keep it eye level. Amazing performances are fun because of how they're re-told, and passed on. Just listen to the Jordan, Bird, and Magic stories. All embelished to some extent. However, nothing in here has yet to be exaggerated.
