That's not what it's about.

Plenty of guys take time to become good to great players but it's like a graph that continues to improve. Ratelle didn't make it till he was 25.

Manny not only wasn't given time to develop but was so jerked around (through no fault of his own) that his game may be less than it was when he was 18.
