I really hope I am wrong on this one, but I am afraid this might be a disappointing year for Wes. Starting off the year with a knee injury plus the normal tendency for a sophmore slump plus the pressure of being "the man" on the team......I don't know. Is anyone else nervous?
I am absolutely stoked for Thursday's game. I know it is exhibition, but i really want to see these guys play something besides streetball.
It didn't seem to change Stinson much when he was in the same situation. I think sophomore slumps are often the result of not working as hard when your freshman year comes relatively easy to you. It sounds like Wes worked even harder.

I also think they can happen when you are no longer a surprise, and teams start game planning to stop the phenom. That's when a second option, say a big, long-range bomber that can pass helps to alleviate the pressure. Someone along the lines of a Lucca Staiger.
