hes been amazingly consistent. in that this is exactly how he plays almost every year at this point. hes a dominant player when everything is clicking for him. i dont think its that he doesnt care till it doesnt matter, it just seems like his game isnt the most skill oriented and it takes him way too long to get it all going at once. he could really use another skill guy who creates on his own, so that the ugly starts impact is lessened. at the end of the day, you cant deny hes one of the best in the game when hes playing like this. everything he touches starts going in, passes somehow start finding the right sticks. i dont think this year is better than any other time hes done this. the year we squeeked into the playoffs and made the conference finals he was this good down the stretch. statistically maybe there is a difference but in watching him play its the same.
