Yup thats why players make the best GM's.
Thats why Michael Jordan is the best evaluator of talent in the NBA.
emotions is what makes us human
i aint mad at this . dont feel the same but it could go either way. kobe and td are the two best players since mj left ...
If I was a player, I would probably care more about how my peers thought of me than the Media.
I've heard players such as AI and Kobe both say that that's the pinnacle.
However, In my pesonal opinion in terms of assessing basketball players who've played or are playing are just too close to the game, and too emotionally invested in the game to give an objective analysis of the NBA.
That isn't to say that the Media or analyst can't be wrong, or that people who haven't played are always right, but the idea that a Player's opinion trumps everyone else's should not be the case in my opinion.
