TNT and ESPN Commentator Criticism of our Nuggs

With today's national TV game againt the Lakers, is anyone else growing tired of the criticism by the TNT and ESPN "experts" about the Nuggs?  Barkley, Kenny Smith, Michael Wilbon and Jon Barry in particular seem to play the same record about the Nuggs over and over:   Barkley, Wilbon, and crew rail on about the Nuggets losing big leads, their lack of focus, their lack of professionalism, they can't beat the Lakers in a 7 game series, etc.   You would think the Nuggs were 20 games below .500 not 20 games above .500 the way they are trashed on ESPN and TNT.  Against the Celtics, the Nuggs were up about 9 at halftime, and you would have they were down 20 by the way Barry and Wilbon trashed their effort.   And, after beating the Warriors by 15 in San Francisco, Barkley used this substantial road victory as evidence that the Nuggs are going nowhere this year.  The talking heads rarely mention the Nuggs great record and focus against the best teams in the League, the fact that this is likely the best team in franchise history, that they are exciting and fun to watch, etc. 

Anyone else bothered by the disrespect the Nuggs get during national media games?
