there are only two future roads: superstardom or bust, and it will be up to him which one he ends up. He can easily, and I mean easily, average 25 points a game. But unless he learns to play defense, he will fail miserably. .
the guy can barely put 10ppg now.
either he gets in early foul trouble or gets eaten alive by the opposing C.
and thats only half his problem...
the guy is shooting an abysmal 38% from the floor...
with that stat, he'll have to jack up 30 shots a night to hit 25 points...
he has some MAJOR work to do... MAJOR!
i dont see him ever managing an average of 25 points.
17 is his max, period.
and i say this because he'll have some games of 30 a night, then others of 8.
he wont be a superstar, IMO, but he wont be a bust either... he'll gain confidence and be a "middle-of-the-pack" type of guy.
25-30 mins... 17 points/7 boards tops.
