Ok, now that I have your attention, let me put this in simple terms. Lets take all the people we've seen fight, such as Gaara... Sakura.... and even Sasuke's speed demonstration and lets put it into a little box... this little box will be closed. Lets close it... CLOSE IT DAMN IT! Ok, now thats its closed, we're gonna throw the box far.. far... far away.... yes, just throw it. GOOD!! Now, if that didnt work for you, continue reading this post. Comparing Naruto... to Sasuke, Sakura or anyone elses improvement for that matter is like comparing 3 brand new computers to a computer thats been massively overclocked. Naruto = overclocked computer because we haven't seen how he can operate without the influence of Kyuubi upon him. This is NOT a Naruto > Sasuke or anyone Thread. This is a "Be patient and stop saying Naruto sucks seeing as how you have NO foundation to say that." Thread. BTW, I think Sai is the AL.
