Playing with slicker players, he's more reactive, playing with worker ants, he takes charge and initiates. If he turns the corner someday and becomes a 30/30 or 25/25 type of guy, it'll be when he has the confidence to play he same way with more talented players. Until then, it's up to the staff to read what he can give them.
