And cut his minutes by a sizable chunk and watch his numbers revert closer back to mean. For every action there is an equal but opposite reaction.
JVR's production per cap hit this year, when hurt, was his best year ever. Most of you complain about it, but it BLEW away Nash's best year in terms of production per cap hit, and on top of that, it beat Nash's best year.
There is also zero reason to think his numbers will significantly improve here despite having Giroux because not only is he older, but he will also get less minutes.
