Anyone on this board a Psych?
Is it possible JM has ADD? The wizards should have him checked out. He has all the telltale signs. Compare him to players who are just lazy (andray blatche), and others who play hard but just plain cocky and selfish (jordan crawford). Its evident by the fact that he's able to maintain focus for early stretches in games for short periods of time. He is also able to maintain it better on the road where he's in a new environment. I see kids like JM all the time, who just have their head in the clouds.
How else do you explain playing a sport yo ulove, n the NBA in front of thousands of- people, and not being able to focus on defender. Even those who are drastically overpaid and dont want to try Rashard lewis, still go through the motions when faced with external pressure like that.
I'm not a big fan of ADD medication in general and I think its horribly abused and overmedicated, but the wizards should get him checked out.
I also think taking time off is good for Javale.
