Blogging With the Enemy: Peninsula Is Mightier

This is not the right answer, Coach Woodson:

"Josh [Smith] is five years in the league now, man. And it comes down to time, score and situation. That’s the bottom line. We’re not telling him he can’t shoot 3-pointers, but if you miss four or five jump shots, something has to go off in his head that says, ‘I have to do something else.’

Nor is this the right answer, Mr. Smith:

"Obviously I want to be out there on the court doing everything I can to help my team. I just have to stay with whatever the defense gives me and stay confident in myself and I’ll be fine."

Emphasis mine in both instances. That empty feeling in the pit of your stomach. I feel it too.
