The question is, has he just lost a step with age and injury? Or was he never really the type of guy who could carry a team offensively without the help of some pretty good teammates. I tend to think it's the former. He looked pretty good beating Houston in the playoffs after Durant went down.
I actually think it's a combination of both. I think Steph needed others more than we realized, especially considering the amount of damage he does off the ball. Yes he was great against Houston, but then again lots of people look great against Houston in the playoffs lol.
It's also disconcerting that he's looking slow after taking all that time off for an injury that had nothing to do with his lower body. You'd think he'd have fresh legs, but that doesn't seem to be the case. GS might be in for a very long season.
