A few things to note about pressure: It is prominent in pro sports, it comes in many forms, people react to it in a variety of ways and it can define a career.

Pressure is fostered from circumstances individuals are thrust into, whether they are rookies, veterans, coaches or others involved in the sport. And with each year, there is an elemental change which shifts the tides league-wide.

When that happens, certain people are no longer feeling that weight, while others have all of a sudden had the heat turned up on them. And as mentioned, it is about how people respond to it when it happens to them.
