I'm just saying Jimmer was guarding him in the 4th and the Kings seemed to not have adjusted to guarding the pick and roll with him.
you're exaggerating by using a smaller sample size that makes him look a lot better then he has been:
* he is actually averaging 14.8 points - 2.4 rebs - 3.2 assists - 2.0 turnovers
* he's shooting .385 on FG's and .331 on three's, and he is only averaging 14.8 points on 14.4 FG attempts
* he has a PER of 12.8 and a TS% of .471
* he has an offensive rating of 98 on a team that has an offensive rating of 103. And he has a defensive rating of 111 on a team that has a defensive rating of 109. In other words, he performs worse on both ends of the floor then the team that has the 2nd worst record in the entire league.
If these were season long numbers for any player other then a rookie, he'd be considered a low efficiency chucker who plays bad defense
and just using the 'he's-playing-better-now' argument in a thread comparing rookies isn't saying much. Most rookies tend to play better as they adjust to the league
