You're right, you get the hype, then the back lash to the hype then the defense of the backlash then the cries of linguistic biase then the defense of same then you forget what it is you were arguing about.

I like the kid, seems to be a pleasant young guy, well spoken, mature for his years and I hope for the best for more than just the sweater he wears.

He's a young guy and sometimes they play like wind up toys. They have a good game, maybe a few good games then they figure they've turned the corner and take their foot off the gas.
