If anything, there is less pressure this season because there are literally zero expectations.

These guys are pros and get paid millions to play a sport at a high level. Don't feel bad for him.
Its more so of what people expect him to be. Even though this season means nothing to us, other than aim high for the lottery. A lot of people are expecting him to improve from what we saw last season. Wanting him to be a franchise player, he probably knows he's not an all star and is trying too hard throwing himself out of his rhythm. And it doesnt help when he also had the next VC comparison as well.
He needs to close his eyes take a deep breath and restart just playing his game
