The post right above the one of mine you quoted reads:

He's a good player who could develop more, if given the opportunity. He just hasn't been given a fair shake here in Detroit yet.
Woe.

Another....

Quote:
its not fair to him to hold him back
Woe.

And when multiple people are saying that he could be so much more, if he were just given the chance.... it sounds like "woe" to me. I wonder how many people would think that if he weren't a 1st round draft pick.

For the record, I'm not opposed to him getting a bigger role and giving him a bigger chance. See what happens. But I'm in no way convinced this kid will ever be top-4 material.
