I was so hot and cold with McClain. One moment I loved him, the other I hated him.
In the end, I became a Will Witherspoon fan and felt that Spikes and McClain were clones as players and Spikes was arguably better, and that Spikes was much better value.
Turns out, Spikes was actually much better than McClain.
