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.)
