Not sure I agree with this the way you worded it. I think it’s more a case of some players figure out what they need to do to contribute and stay in the league while others simply never figure it out. Whether that’s fitting your skill set into a team environment or developing new skills that make you more valuable. That’s why you usually see that once guys establish themselves and smart, reliable rotation players, they end up staying in the league for a long time on multiple teams.
And when you’re a guy like Jimmer, playing with the ball in your hands your entire life, learning to play without the ball is a pretty huge change. He’s just not good enough to be an on the ball player at this level.
