I was watching Miami and San Antonio last night wondering why they get rookies that perform so well while we seem to get busts (or so we say after a few bad games) more often than not. And it dawned on me.
They have established stars and there is ZERO pressure on them. Really if they are any good, it's a bonus.
Having been in both situations personally (on a much smaller level of course), having the space to grow at your own speed with no expectations is very liberating.
Time to lay off of Demar.
