I really hope it's not the latter, because it would be a shame to see his career end earlier as a result of playing nothing short of balls to the wall for the first 5-6 years of his career.
Yeah, could be. I go back to the concussion because that seems to be the most obvious turning point. He was dominant on the Kings and basically their offense until he got the concussion. He hasn't returned to form since. It just strikes me as a very convenient correlation.
Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
