The one thing we can generally say with certainty when discussing sport is that the truly great players are almost always taken for granted.

Once they establish an elevated level of play, it often takes a lot to get us excited about someone’s performance. For example, is anyone in Miami or Boston rhapsodizing about the fact that on Friday LeBron James was absolutely unstoppable for three quarters as he was busy scoring 30 of his team’s first 59 points on an evening when most of his teammates might perhaps have been better off volunteering at a soup kitchen?
