Still say the metamorphosis occurred over the year, last year. Your defensive ability and IQ doesn't just improve over the course of a summer when you hardly play. It's a cumilative process over time and by the last couple months of last season, he WAS a good help defender. He was the one coming over and forcing attackers baseline and out of bounds, he was the one coming over and blocking shots, he was the one racing to wide open perimeter players as they were about to shoot. He was the one flashing the top of the key trying to prevent guards swinging the play. People just didn't notice.
