Really? I dunno. His % did dip to 40% but he did still score 17.2 ppg this past year on a fairly shitty team - after Irving went down. For a condensed season he still averged 6.3 rpg.
I would like to see what his averages are on a very good team and not the focus for other teams defensive schemes. I'll wager his % goes back up to his career average of 45% though his rpg may dip if he plays with D12, if not I can see 7+ rpg. That's pretty good for a 36 year old and he certainly won't have to work so hard to score on the Lakers.
