This is a perfect example of Confirmation Bias. As I have before, I said multiple times in that post that Kyle Singler is a limited player with strengths and weaknesses: 1) "He has obvious flaws. He's not a game changer. He's not a SF that's going to give you 20 points and 8 boards a game while shooting 3/6 from downtown. He's not going to hold other teams' scorers to zero points." 2) "Nobody here is saying Singler is an all-star. Nobody is calling him an amazing player. He makes mistakes. He isn't perfect." But then you saw me say "he actually is a pretty decent player," and in your mind, it's enough to justify you questioning everything I said in the rest of the post. One little piece of information that kind of fit what you were looking for, and it completely overruled the rest of what I said. That is a perfect example of the level of biased analysis you're doing with Singler. I'm not some sort of stringent Singler defender; my sentiment toward him is not strong at all. He is what he is; a role player that does a few things well, that two coaches now have decided merited playing starters' minutes, if not a starter's role. The data does not back up the claim that he is a bad defender, despite what you (and a handful of others) have concluded. In fact, this post was not so much about Singler at all, but about the general tendency to harbor our own biases and - if we're not careful - to let those biases affect our judgment. I used Singler as an example because it's clearly your most recent crusade - it was an opportunity to demonstrate to others (if you aren't willing to see yourself) that our own biases can affect our ability to analyze things. In fact, I gave an example of my own bias with regard to KCP; he's been playing better in some ways, but I wanted to believe it. We all do it, and so do you, but it feels to me that you take it farther than most others. And then you gave me that nice little ironic example of another bias, and, well, I just had to respond.
