I said that this season is about staying healthy for him, just that its not a contract year (cuz theres no way he gets extended next summer) so he doesnt necessarily have to try and dominate, especially with so much firepower on the team. I definitely agree that hes gotta prove that he can stay relatively healthy to get a decent contract in 2 years, but I was talking more about from a performance aspect this season his contract wont really affect his play. By all rights he should be really motivated this season anyway regardless of his contract situation so its not really even worth discussing.
