Pretty much. He would have had a much better, more complete career but he had major defensive issues that were going to prevent him from living up to the #1 overall hype in any case.
And lets not forget that his two full seasons before being hurt were 34 and 30 point efforts. It isnít like he was on an upward trajectory to stardom when the injury happened.
If he plays a full career, he maybe gets into the 50-60 point range a couple times and makes an All-Star game purely on offensive merit. Doubt he would ever have had the two-way stuff to finish top-10 in Norris voting or anything like that.
