I guess more of a question, rather than a statement...Also a tad off topic, my apologies..
Next season. Period. This season, he's never going to look as good as he did last season.
He missed his hardcore pre-training camp workouts, training camp, and half the season. He's just not going to be as good until he has had time to go through all of the above.
That he has done as well as he has so far is a testament to how good he really is. But we have to wait until next season to see him really shine.
