I wish he was a 3-4 instead of a 1-2. I think at 16-18 minutes a game he would be a much more effective player. But i have thought that for years now.
Definitely a big part of it. in the past he had the wheels help cover for his running around and generally stupid play. Now he cant pull it off and he looks like crap.
