I never denied that he is declining. I'm simply saying he's not an awful basketball player as you claim. He's a solid role player.
Well, the totality of his regular season and the last few seasons says other wise. Have faith if you want. But I'm not gonna trust a few weeks worth of good games over the rest of the last few years, which have been terrible. And don't bother with the injury excuse. Like I said, it's part of the equation.
