PS. Finwe... pre-emptive strike there? BTW, I created this thread. I define closing not as just end of games. You can close out an opponent in the first quarter if you do the right things. If it will make you feel better, I can change the name of the thread?
What? Seriously? Do you not see the huge contradiction?
There is no need to redefine "closing"; the word already has a meaning, one that all of us (well, most of us) understand.
I'm just saying that if you want to talk about Kobe's general game, there already is a thread for it, called "Kobe Bryant Discussion". This thread was supposed to be about "Kobe the Closer", which, to the rest of us, means "the thread about the way Kobe closes games, his performances during crunch time, big shots down the stretch, etcetera".
To change the whole concept and just make it about Kobe's overall performance is unnecesary, 'cause we already have a thread (where you can post/"vent" any time you like) about that.
