Last year was wash because he was still trying to get into playing shape after being out for 3 years. This year, he's finally back in shape and playing his style of game and the results are showing. It's not so much a surprise that he's playing this well, as it is a surprise that he made it back from his injury to begin with. But once the problems were gone, he was right back to being the top power forward prospect he always was. And next season he'll be that much better!

was he really that highly thought of? i ddn't keep track of prospects back then, but dang, im just glad he's back. do u know if he's completley 100% or is he still suffering from back pains?
