Gomez may never reach 60 points in a season again.
Hmm, lots of players have good seasons in the 30s. His career high was 80+ points which obviously he'll never reach. But 60 points from a 32 year old that has only gotten less than 55 points in a season once (he got 48 points when he was 22) in his 11 year career going into this season? If he has another identical season next year then I'd say he's probably done but as of right now, it's a good possibility this is an off year that many other athletes have.
