Most of where I feel he played poorly was on decision making and confidence, not necessarily with effort, which is why I'm not opposed to having him continue to play. He can still do a lot more; I just think that we're used to seeing him play worse that the bar's been lowered a bit.
Hopefully that makes more sense, whether or not you agree
Maybe there are things I missed, as well.
Yeah I get where you're coming from. I probably am handicapping my expectations for him right now. I agree that it's not an effort problem with him. I think it's all mental, and he looked much better in that regard today in my opinion.
