He has an incredible amount of talent, and goes through long stretches where he flat out doesn't use it; it's abundantly clear during those no-effort stretches that he isn't snake bitten, he simply isn't putting in the same amount of effort.
He's like Zherdev because he's a great talent but due to maturity/focus/mental/diva issues, that talent gets squandered. On top of that there is little indication he is a team player and is reclusive...like Zherdev.
See the above responses.
Your above responses dont change the fact that Semin is and has always been
more effective than Zherdev ever was. Your responses have nothing to do with the fact that Semin is a potential 70+ point player. Something Zherdev only dreamt of being.
You're also resorting to stereotypes by assuming that Semin's inconsistency is a result of "laziness". What about Carter? Was he inconsistent because of laziness or was he just an inconsistent player? Your assumptions are founded in stereotypes.
