He's played more D than in previous years but is far from being a game-changing, uber-athletic defensive wing and that's why he gets called out. All this supposed athletic potential and he's unable to utilize his most heralded skillset to be at minimum an above average defender.

I think he can improve immensly defensively, but he's got to continue to work on his body and athleticism cause he's sitll a kid in a man's game.
