And I mean that both for the community, charity, and for his teammates - notice young guys giving him credit all the time for helping them transition in the league, no doubt the guys like having him around and he's a good teammate.
Anyway, call me an apologist all you want, I think Gomez has played like **** and I honestly think when healthy we are close to being a better team without him in the lineup at all, but jeez people need to learn to separate a human being from the sport. It's sad, but also a perfect example of why I try not venture into any non-news thread!
What can you say? People have a blind hatred when it comes to Gomez. People just bash him for the sake of bashing him, over anything. I see plenty of people bashing him even when he has a strong game.
I can't stand him on the team, but I love him as a human being, he's got such a great personality and seems like a great friend to have. He's done plenty for the community, charities and whatnot, more than probably anyone that bashes him endlessly on these boards.
