I'm not so sure. Maybe not about "promoting," but Kramer does seem to have a few idiosyncratic opinions occasionally that serve to elevate or diminish certain players in the history of the game.

(The only common thread I can detect among them is that it appears that Kramer wished to diminish the reputations/achievements of those who might be compared with himself.)
Step 1: Refute content of argument. If that fails, Step 2: question intelligence of the author. If that fails, Step 3: demonize the messenger.
