I mentioned this somewhere else, but how much further would his development actually be? His offensive game might be a little further along, but his defensive game might not be much further. He's 21. I don't know if I'd call this year underachieving.
I don't think his development would be much further along? And I agree the offense would have been more likely to benefit if he wasn't rushed. But I was thinking more along the lines of how people judged his development. If he was a rookie, people would be talking about his potential. But now that he is in his third year it is why isn't he doing more. Same player, same age, different fan expectations. Personally I'm willing to give him another year or 2 and see how things go.
