Well, truth be told his overall per(not a huge fan of) did go up by 1.4.

Im not saying he didn't improve, nor am I saying he wont improve in the future I am just saying he isn't going to turn into a Garnett of even a Bosh for that matter. His improvement this past year wasnt as ridiculous considering that his playing time did in fact double.

Roy became much more effecient this past season and is a very effective player but I really cant see him ever being a 28ppg scorer, he is very effective in a team concept and when money comes calling in a couple of years there will be a decline in his efficiency.
