    I go to where I think people over-rate or under-rate players. Now I feel the Kobe talk has shifted into the over-rated category.

    I defend Wade and Lebron and Dirk because I feel they are vastly under-rated.

    I used to defend KG all the time. Now I find myself "hating" on him at times because he's becoming a little over-rated because of the title.

    If people start calling Lebron or Wade top 8 players of all time if they win a title? You'll see me "hate" on them as well.

    I don't make threads. I respond to threads or posts that interest me. Right now that is all the stuff that is going on.

    Stuff like that. Its not "hating" really....its just trying to fix the flawed perceptions a lot of people have.

    Like the game winning stuff with Kobe. A lot of flawed perceptions were out there. Now? Not so much. So I don't talk about it anymore.
    Fair enough

    I also have repeatedly said that I want Kobe to play until he's 40. He has a timeless game and skill set that is matched by very few players in history.

    I have nothing against Kobe. I have a thing against the 15 year old fans that want to make excuses for him left and right no matter what happens.

    It would be like me claiming Dirk played a great game 3. Nope. He really struggled. He was lucky enough to have a team around him that could give him a chance to make some big plays late. In the past, that would have been a for sure Mavs loss.

    Which is why I've constantly said that while Dirk is playing great, its the supporting cast that is the difference and quite frankly deserves the most credit. Its Barea and Kidd and Chandler and Marion that are making the difference this year. Its Terry finding his 2006 game.

    That has been my theme since I've been here. And I won't be changing that just to further a Dirk agenda even though I could right now easily. You don't win alone. Its pretty much never happened.
