The writer probably based the article off from pre-season expectations.
Barbosa was expected to make a difference off the bench and changed the game. A lot of nights, he did not get into the flow of the game and disappeared completely. Is it his fault? Probably not because of injury. But it's unfair to boost Barbosa's grade, because a lot of other players are also hurting.
