I think a lot of times some of those guys get drafted off of a tournament and some of the scouts don't take in your body of work. And then some of those guys don't stay in school long enough to really learn the fundamentals to stick around on an NBA team. Because it's totally different. It's not like you're choosing to go to that team. That team drafts you and expects you to perform every night. And I think what happens with a lot of guys, they don't learn, because they were superstars for one or two years when they came. They didn't have to come off the bench, be a role player, take less of a role, and they don't know how to handle it. There are only 60 possessions in an NBA game, and if you're playing with Allen Iverson, he's taking anywhere from 20 to 30 shots a game. So there are other parts of the game that you have to contribute to stick around. Them guys being young, they don't understand that part of the game.
