I just don't think two or three fluke playoff series' should hold as much weight as you imply.

If a player has a bad stretch during the regular season it is written off as it should be. Why can't that happen in the playoffs? Why does it automatically mean he is unlcutch?

And as we have seen throughout his last several playoff efforts he really is the same player. He doesn't magically wither.

Does anyone think if he puts together a magical run of 20 games out of 1500 or so it makes him that much better?
