I think it has. At least to me it seems he altered a lot more shots last season and was a better one on one defender. This season he hasn't seemed to alter as many shots, contest shots which also accounts to a degree to the pretty large drop in his BPG (Half of what he averaged last season). He seems to care even less on D then last season, which i didn't think was possible. And his recent comments about "it's basketball not reboundball", seem to show an unwillingness to want to get better on defense.
