Doesn't seem like this is brought up at all...I don't know if it's the celebrities, pressure, or whatever other distractions, but the guy is really feeling the pressure at home - his percentage on the road (61% [vs 40% at home]) is actually pretty good for him, so he's just going to have to start getting comfortable with Staples Center and work out those mental demons.

Hmm...this is an interesting observation, and I think that there is something to it.

Hey Dwight, you're not in Orlando anymore. I can understand being blinded by the bright lights a bit...but Dwight isn't a rookie, he needs to get over it, and start playing for keeps.

:laughing: LMAO. Sucks to be out of +1s so often. Wanted to give one for this and some other post in the Pop thread and I'm sure maybe more as the day rolls by. Happens too often, the little amount we have allowed is definitely a pet peeve of mine (sorry for the sorta off-topic rant).

yo.
