I feel bad for him, because I have been feeling the same this year in the sports I've been playing. I had much more explosiveness when playing rugby and lacrosse last year, now my legs get worn out during games after 5 minutes of play. Just gonna need to hit the gym and work on the metabolism to get less tired during the offseason.
I (possibly) agree with that. If his legs are done then his legs are done - it's not his fault. People decline at different ages. He's got this upcoming offseason and next year to sort it out and see if he can get them back and salvage his game - regardless he's going to be gone after that year though. But I think calling him lazy or disinterested is both really unfair and false. I would stand by that comment for almost every player in the league.
