LOL... So by your assertion, a tired Nesbitt < 100% Jaybo/Tevin or a tired D Morgan < 100% Egbuniwe & etc?
I appreciate your opinion, but that is simple not true. When those lungs give out on you, that is when that mental toughness, will, and raw talent kicks in and your second string can't simply provide all of those attributes.
MJ and DRich were both 3*s
and these two attributes (mental toughness, will) are what usually separates a 3* from a 4* or 5*. I've seen a LOT of physically gifted players who never made an impact because they lacked these attributes! One of the classic examples that come to mind was Daryl Strawberry, one of the most physically gifted athletes I've ever seen. He was truly a five tool player but a 5MM body couldn't make up for a .05 brain.
