Just an impression that his play has dropped off significantly since last year. That could be because it was a lot easier for his good play to stand out last year, and maybe his bad plays were swallowed up by the catastrophe going on all around him. So maybe he hasn't declined, but to the naked eye, he's declined pretty significantly, particularly from about November on.
I agree. He's been meh at best for quite a while now. His lack of speed and physicality is obvious. Plus his "booming shot" rarely gets on net.
