as for blake, steve blake is immune to slander. sorry but that just is the way it is
people say this every year, at the start of the season people talk about how cp3 is super duper and how his numbers are historical. then he gets bounced the playoffs and its just a matchup problem, and the other team had the two best players. if he is losing in the playoffs every year because of matchup problems than he isnt that good, you cant be the best pg in the game and have matchup problems with other pgs in the playoffs every year
but hey, advanced stats
yup, that's the reason why I don't claim players as "top ____" . prove yourself in the playoffs by letting it all hang out, I can't slander someone who showed up and balled out SIMPLY because they didn't advance/win. I just give it up to the better team
depends on who it is, if its an up and coming player that loses early in the playoffs maybe they will get better. if its a guy that gets hyped up year after year but never does anything in the playoffs then that is 100% slander worthy.
there is a reason OKC was a better team, they had the two best players. people were talking all year about how great cp3 is and he cant even be the 2nd best player in a playoff series? i honestly never expected him to actually throw a game but the fact that he is a major reason his team lost makes everything that much better.
