The fact that you actually look at a 22 year old player - who is in his first full season on a *contending team* that isn't looking to coddle rookies and plays for a coach that is notorious for favoring veterans over rookies - and focus only on what they aren't good at currently, rather than what they *are* good at or show potential to be good at, has got to be one of the most ridiculous things I've seen in the past 24 hours on these boards (of which there has been a lot)...
Not what I said, just tired of the hype and blaming the coach. Good job on the ad hominem though - somehow hype, scapegoating and ad hominem all fall under the same entry.
