The date they are for real?

Postby Rookies » Fri May 06, 2005 6:26 pm

I read once that historically speaking, players who are having unexpectedly good seasons can be considered “for real” if they are still performing well by a certain date.

I can't remember where I read it. I think the date was somewhere in early June and the percentage of those who continued to perform well was pretty high.

Anybody know about this or am I speaking Chinese?

Not sure if there's a "date" but usually 2 weeks after AS break works for me.. then again, it should probably be the same date you give up on a struggling star as not going to wake up...

Speaking Chinese to me.

Never heard of a theory that uses a particular date, but then again, I don't look for that kind of theory unless there's solid proof behind it.

Maybe someone knows of this "magical date"? :-?
