Has gotten worse every year since his sophomore season. Not going to hold out hope for some career renaissance

He's definitely had health troubles. But his shooting has been incredibly inconsistent, his shot selection has been terrible and his passing has gotten worse.

Here is a twitter thread calling him the worst NBA player of all time: https://twitter.com/dmfrank_/status/1386406577649946624

This shot in particular has always stuck with me: https://twitter.com/DMFrank_/status/1386406938934603776

More like just another example of why teams tend to stay away from college seniors.  His best year came at age 24, which while early isnít an outlier.

Some of the plays are pretty incredible. I admire the level of player-loathing that one person can have
