"a quick example disproves your analysis. jamison shot 53.5% here in dallas and shot 45% in washington this season as the third option behind arenas and butler. prior to this season he's shot 44.2 and 43.7% respectively."

Just wanted to add my two cents here, Jamison didn't play this entire season as the number 3 guy. He actually played about 15 games as the number 1 guy another 10 games as a number 2 guy.

Hey, just because you are a Mod, dont think that you are a God Send here. I have found no value in your rebuttals yet to NY. As of matter of fact, I am tired of your shi**y remarks my way as well. Leave the personal stuff to the trolls.

I'm not saying that's all there is to it, but it's really easy to go overboard on mental toughness and a winning mindset. I mean, who considered Chauncey Billups a big-time winner until the Pistons won the title? Tim Duncan has all the characteristics people assign to "soft" players (not a vocal leader, misses free-throws in the clutch, etc.), but the guy just wins titles. If mental toughness could be predicted or quantified in some way other than after-the-fact judgments, I'd give it a little more credence.

I'd say that mental toughness is not over-rated, but it is nigh on impossible for the fan to judge such an attribute.
