I'm well aware of Akeson's age, apparently moreso than you were. I don't need to be told what I need to consider in forming my opinion from you. Do you even know my opinion?
The statment you made was factually inaccurate, there's no disputing that. Now, if you want to raise the point that his banner season this year should be somewhat discounted because he was an over-ager, that is debateable. It's not like Akeson's production this season was an outlier. He put up well over a point per game as a 19 year old, as an 18 year old, as a 17 year old etc. Also, a primary reason overagers are advantaged is they are typically more physically developed than their younger competition. With Akeson's relatively small build, that's not a significant factor here.
