Putting it simply, he's a bonehead! I like his competitiveness and confidence but i cringe quite a bit when he's on the floor because you just don't know what to expect with him night to night. That could just be youth because he's still young but i just don't see him ever being a solid starter in the NBA long term and he's an inconsistent backup.
IMO he was REALLY impressive during that stretch when he started. He put up 20+ points while also having decent assist numbers that people doubted he could put up. He also did have that "take over" mentality during the late stretches of those games and more often than not it worked out fine. But yeah I share your concern for his future, it's too hard to tell.
