Kobe would have developed anywhere. Now look at Darko. Nice winning environment. Didn't help. Goes where he can get loads of minutes on a loser. No difference.

The only thing that changes is the way we might perceive a player's development or lack thereof. A player that doesn't deserve minutes but gets them out of necessity, is going to stand out, as is a player that is ready for the minutes, but is not going to be able to move past the players ahead of him in the rotation. But the guy that that proves to be capable isn't hampered anymore than the bust is helped by situations that don't quite suit them right off the bat. It's still on them to do everything they can. The resources are there no matter what.
