Well firstly, as of now, he is not an MVP candidate, and really never has been.
Secondly, if the system made him look good then he would have had plenty of double doubles last season.
Thirdly, he is so complete as an offensive player that without fastbreak buckets he would have no problem scoring like he does in the current system.
