being a Dallas fan, all teams, Cowboys, Mavs (pre-ring), and even Rangers...I know fully how overblown the word "choke" is used...it is used in half the games that are played
the worst misconception to me is "clutch gene"
...as though playing well in the 4th quarter rather than the first 3 quarters is someone engraved in our DNA. Romo threw an INT in the 4th?...oh that is his missing clutch gene, he was born without that poor guy
...(nevermind the fact that he actually threw more INTs on average at beginings of games)
Dirk lost in the playoffs after winning MVP?...that is because of his bad "clutch gene"...Dirk will never win a ring because "winning" is not in his DNA
it's just all so simple minded and stupid...
