He completely gets overpowered by bigger guards.

I disagree with him playing for stats over wins. He clearly does want to put up good numbers and wants to be recognized as the best. He's even said as much. But he's also always the first to celebrate everyone elses achievements and always the first to call attention to teammates that he thinks deserves it.

I don't think he's a selfish person and I personally can see in his face and demeanor that losing gets to him. I think winning is his number 1 priority. I'm pretty sure being seen as the best is also just as important, but I think he'll do whatever he's asked to be on a winner. Hopefully I'm right on that.

I think it's the caricature/persona he plays that gives off the 'I over team' thing but I agree that he'll play whatever role is asked. Behind the scenes, he wont be happy but that's okay for now.

I might be a little harsh on him. I think he's been making an effort to be a good teammate, it's not his nature tho.
