I would be interested in seeing how many players make significant improvement that doesn't always pop up on the radar. My guess is that there are more than we think. Wouldn't it be logical to assume that most players improve as the season progresses?
It would also be logical to assume that many tire as the season progresses.
This is the school of thought I'm coming from, too. I know I take for granted what these athletes do on a daily basis. Granted, they're playing a sport and doing what they love and getting paid for it, but even if you just consider all the traveling they're doing, it has to take a toll on them.
Thus far, the most logical conclusion I've seen is that others tend to slow down more so than our "big" 2nd half guys.
