The improvement this dude has made since Triano left has been steady, consistent, and fulfilling of his promise in a step by step fashion. If anybody is going to continue to assess his play based on the week handles and slow footedness and poor defense has their head stuck up their ass after binging on a meal from 2009. Just take a really good shit and you'll feel much better. Make sure you let out all the gas as well.
And no i'm not saying he's the next coming of Kobe. Don't send those nasty farts this way. There are plenty of teams that would love to find a way to get this guy. Doc wanted him this summer. Zach Lowe noted the interest league-wide in his last piece. He is still young, continues to get better, and has always played hard and looked to compete. If he gets a taste of winning in this league, watch out. It could make the Rudy acquisition look worthwhile, and then make Rudy look expendable soon enough.
