Nah, he's trying to tell you to wait longer than 1 quarter before overreacting.

Huh?

He posted this on twitter the day after that Kings game Put up 500 jump shots.. #NewRoutine gotta get my s--- back! http://instagr.am/p/SwdgUunMqA/ Be patient with him.

Dude is so much more raw offensively than people have been led to believe. He's a solid open 3 point shooter, but really has very little in his offensive arsenal other than that. People who said that he could basically assume Granger's role must have never watched him play. There's a lot of room for growth, but he's really not a good offensive player right now.

I wouldn't say it's that bad, but you're right it's pretty raw. He's not just a stand still jump shooter, though He can shoot off the dribble and he's whatever at putting the ball on the floor. I've seen some games where he played from the post and hit fadeway jumpers. I've also seen games where he did make plays off the dribble with some stepback jumpers. He's just wildly inconsistent and it's mostly because he struggles to consistently create space for himself.

As an owner, I definitely expected more than this. I'm still satisfied with the stats across the board that he does provide, but I'm still hopeful (long season) that his offense gets better.

obviously, granger is a better player. i never saw the hype in george. outside of being a nice defender, his game is still raw. i always felt people were reaching when proclaiming him a superstar talent. even before the granger injury, people were pickin him way too soon.

Just an embarrassing performance today. Bust of the year so far.

Whoa now.. He's just had two awful games. But outside of these two lousy performances, he was producing top 30 level. It's a long season. He was inconsistent last year and it looks like we're going to have to deal with his inconsistencies again this year. But bust of the year? Not even close..
