I agree with this and everything you said. But again, I don't see why that's being used against Harris' potential. That's an entirely separate discussion. Again, I haven't seen a single post proclaiming Harris as a sure-fire future All-Star (if there was one I've missed it). All that's been said is that he showed good offensive ability as a 19-year-old rookie (which is true), demonstrated the ability to be an efficient scorer as a rookie (also true), when given reasonable minutes produced at an effective level offensively (again, true) and he needs a lot of work defensively (true as well).
If people think he won't become anything more than a reserve or decent bench player etc. that's fine. But saying that's the belief because the Bucks stink and have stunk for so many years strikes me as a rather curious way to defend that position. I'd be much more interested in hearing what specifically you saw from Harris on the court this season that leads you to a particular point of view.
