I hope he is past it, but the guy used to disappear for weeks at a time. FWIW, the circumstances were different when the invisibility stretches would happen…different coaching, different teammates (or young teammates still working on hitting their strides), his teams often falling apart as a group…and of course, he was still developing. At the very least, he’s following up last year’s career year with a terrific start this year. It’s not really 9 games…he now has 88 points over his last 80 games. If he stays healthy and produces at around a PPG for this rest of this season, it’s fair to argue that he’ll have left the disappearing acts behind. 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
