Re-watch it. Waynes doesn't hesitate until he sees the side-judge throw the flag in the air. Then he hesitates just a beat before turning to run. I'm not trying to defend that play. He made a mistake. I just want people to take a step back. This is Waynes' first season as a full time starter. He is going to make stupid mistakes. Rhodes made a lot of these same mistakes and there was a lot of talk about him being a bust before the light bulb went on for him. There is no substitute for playing time and Waynes hasn't gotten a lot of it.
