This is worse then Tebow, it's beyond obnoxious. I don't care how good he's doing, it's been 5 or 6 games. Do it for a season and then stuff our heads with it. Another reason why I have a hard time stomaching every other sports sans Soccer and Tennis. The 3 pointer last night was great, but no player in any sport should be getting this much attention.
I respectfully disagree. And, actually, if you were a basketball fan, you might appreciate it more.

To give you a hockey parallel, this isn't like a kid coming from the AHL and having a couple of nice games - it's more like... er... a kid coming from the ECHL, taking over the top center spot on the Blue Jackets (if the Blue Jackets played in a major media market) and then recording a multi-point game every night - including a couple of OT winners - leading them to an undefeated string that pushed them back into the playoff contention.
