What about players in their first game of a performance? Or, for example, that Miami player who might be playing his 9th game of the day?
All the players might throw it around before the Game 1 warmups, but the late gamers won't get another chance until just before their first game.
Does everyone need a warmup game to get the juices flowing (and is Game 1, therefore, a crapshoot)?
And, can a player just have to play so many games that there's 'nothing left in the tank'?
How does it affect your handicapping?
