No one really appreciates how good of a player he is. I think it's a combination of a bunch of factors:

1. Not a flashy player in the slightest
2. NJ Devil
3. NCAA player
4. 6th? round draft pick
5. Came out of no where
6. Incredibly dull name. Sounds like the lame kid in high school that everyone knew but no one cared to talk to.
7. The one time most casual fans ever did hear of him is when he shanked a wide-open shot in the first two games of the Finals. And he was subpar that whole series because of his wrist issues.
