Why do people think this? Neji said he was barely trying. I mean, was Sasuke holding his own against Orochamaru during the forest of death? Neji could have killed her easily anytime during the fight, he just wanted to take his time and slowly crush her and everything she stood for. I'm a huge Hinata fan but I dont get why people think this. Also, her databook stats aren't very good. She above average in intelligence and has above average taijutsu but thats it.
