Default Basketball discussions being taken over by GOAT topics?

Does anyone else feel that this has gone too far? I mean we are at the point where even single games can't be played without people (from whatever side) using a players performance to evaluate where they might be in all time rankings.

When do we actually get to just appreciate the player and not their standing in reference to everyone else?

But beyond that, the minutia of basketball is pervading every conversation. Single game performances are extrapolated to entire season performances. Single losses are the basis trading and even rebuilding scenarios. Minor injuries label players as being liabilities.

This has always been happening, and it might just be me, but I swear it is happening all the time now. Is it me? Or are trivial facts, knee jerk reactions, and "GOAT" lists ruining basketball discussion?
