IE a shot properly exposed for ISO 100 then taken @ ISO 6400. Good luck getting all those highlights back that you just blew out. Not to mention that cameras are ELECTRONIC devices, and gain/ISO does add noise, reduce midtones, lower dynamic range.

You're thinking in reverse. The point being made is that you can shoot at ISO 100, where you will get better DR than you would at ISO 6400. In fact, and while I didn't really need it (was on trial basis), the basketball photographs you've seen from me were all taken at a lower ISO than "Auto ISO" would choose. I just posted one, and you might notice ISO 800, which is the ISO I set instead of using ISO 1600 or letting the camera choose 1600. During RAW conversion, +1EV was applied. The DR is for ISO 800, rather than ISO 1600.
