OK let`s all just calm down for a second.
Try to THINK what that quote might mean.
Compare Crosby and Datsyuk, Lundqvist and Marty. This is not about some flash, it`s not about the consistency, it`s about being something more than just another athlete. Zlatan will never achieve what Messi already has and will, the numbers will never back it up. But when you watch him play, the plays he`s able to pull off, the goals he`s able to score, there`s no way you don`t see the difference. There are numerous flashier guys in football. Nobody`s like Zlatan, just as there was nobody like Zidane back in the day. You may say that there`s nobody as good as Messi either, nobody using his technique. And you would be right saying that. There`s difference between showing brilliance, astonishing technique and wizardry. Not every scuplture is flawless, but even those that are can be ranked and only one will come on the top, for a reason.
If you still don`t understand, I gues we`ll just have to put this discussion into rest and leave it there. Simple as that. I can`t describe it any other way.
