To his credit it looks like he spent this offseason improving when playing off the ball, and hes shot well from 3 so far this season. It could be a mirage or it could be an actual improvement to his game than what he looked like coming out of Louisville.
I've always thought he had potential to be a 20 PPG scorer as soon as he worked on his jumper, but something just isn't clicking for him when it comes to embracing what his coach wants for him. Seems like he expected to start from Day 1 and cant handle being a rotation player who has to beat out others for a starting job.
