for not putting him over Ray Allen or Stackhouse yeah.
for not putting him on the level of other 30ppg scorers, no.
hes probably the most mistake prone and careless superstar to ever play. his career is still young and he has room to grow but he hasn't shown the ability to be consistent.
but he is 24. he works harder than anyone. he plays harder than anyone.
I don't want to jinx anything but I think this guy's career is going to be one of the most entertaining ever. I think for the next decade this team is going to rise and fall according to Gilbert. we're going to have spurts of brilliances and spurts of god-awful ugly play as Gilberts rhythm ebbs and flows. I think we're going to have heroic performances and epic chokes (sometimes in the same game, like game 6 last year). he may or may not be good enough to take us to the next level, but I will never be bored as a fan.
of course I could be completely wrong. Gilbert could mend the holes in his game and become consistent. sort of like what Pierce did with himself. he could become a Kidd clone. really, that's another thing. I have no idea what Gilbert is right now. he's a different player every game. game 1 he's AI, balls in his hand 24/7, he ends up with 33/11. game 2, he's a triple double/hustle guy, getting 12/9/9/some steals/awesome defense. game 3, he plays off-ball, gets 28 points on 12 shots and hits a game winner. game 4, he plays primarily in the high post. game 5, he goes 1-11 from 3. game 6, he gets to the line 16 times. game 7, he gets 21 points on 4-22 shooting. game 8, he simply explodes 40-something against the defending champs on perfect shooting. if he can settle down and become something definitive... that would be awesome, and we have no idea what he will settle into.
I don't get how you can't care about this guy. hes one of the most interesting personalities in the league IMO, his psychology is just as unconventional as his play. and you never know what you're getting. he isn't the most flashy player and doesn't get a lot of media love but... those of us who know whats up... know whats up.
