I think he's just one of those guys that likes the sport, but doesn't love it. One of those guys that plays recreationally, has talent to always be picked up on a pick up team, but doesn't have the motivation to become his best at it. Which is ok. I was always a good soccer player, but my first love was basketball which I tried my hardest to become the best at. I could've probably gone way further in soccer than in basketball given that I just had more natural talent in it (starter in all my years in high school while I was the 6th man on the basketball team), but I just wasn't motivated to. Maybe it's the same way with Jeff. It's just that he's the first son of the world's greatest player that people think he's wasting his life.

He's gonna be fine. He seems like a good kid.
