Bigs, with no disrespect, I have an issue directed towards your analogy about Kobe and Luke Walton.
To say WE (3t/4t) are Walton and the 1T i Kobe is bothersome because many of us have beat those big named schools in court and while I understand you analogy there seems to be an image issue where the Harvard's of the world believe they are better than the Cooley students of the world. They may come from a school with a better reputation but that doesn't mean they are better at what they do and I would hope all Cooley students had a chip on their shoulder about the image of the school.
First off, let me point out that winning in court, in and of itself, isn't simply a matter of who did the better lawyering. It's not like a tennis match (see bigs? I can use sports analogies too!), where winning and losing come down to who's better on a given day: the facts and the law involved in the case itself matter.
