i dont see it....
he's getting a bad grade because there were high expectations... yet his output is low?

last year 17/5/5
this year 13/5/5 - playing 3 minutes less a game, taking 3 less shots per game

im not a mathmatician, but given the fewer game time and less shots, i'm pretty sure he's putting up identical stats as last yer, per minutes played.

so how exactly is it that he's not living up to expectations, and putting up lower numbers?

this is what irks me, what exactly was everyone expecting from Hedo?
how can you give a D grade to someoone who is playing at the exact same level (stats wise) as he was the previous year?
he is the exact same player, the only difference is - he's on a far worse team.
the holes that we are seeing in his game were always there... they are just magnified this season because the team he plays on is weaker than his previous team.

his limitations on the ball court havent differed from last season. the positives that his teamates provided him with last year are what changed.
same player.... different team.
