the bolded is just patently false and pure fiction, WTF are you talking about? go look at his game log. the most minutes he played were even based on circumstance - he played 27 min against memphis on 11/2 b/c donovan was out, then played 21 min against dallas on 11/14 b/c the whole team played like *** and got blown out. other than that, his minutes have been very irregular/sparse and 90% in garbage time. on a team with less guards/wings or a team not fighting for the playoffs, he'd be getting 15-20+ minutes a game easy regardless of his defense. He'll be better long term for it to compete and learn defense, but to say he got a ton of time early is just lies.
