like, what if someone started a "nick young sucks" thread and I responded with "well Nick is getting overshadowed by the great JR Smith. everyone used to compare them but JR actually has way better shot selection and can play defense and create for others." you'd think I was a crazy homer for bringing up JR Smith in a thread that has nothing to do with JR Smith, right?

To me a homer is somebody who feels their team and players can do no wrong and is completely unrealistic about their team. I'm not anything like that. I'm the first to rip my team up when they play like trash and I have realistic expectations for my teams and players. Every player I've hyped has improved and my predictions of the team have been spot on for the most part. I said second round exit last year when most said 1st. I said Bledsoe was a stud when people thought he was a scrub.

I said Griffin would start playing defense. I said Crawford would be a huge addition and have a career year which so far is true. I feel like I'm pretty damn realistic. I think what you are confusing with homer is obsessed with my team to a fault. Which is true.
