But I don't have a problem with any of those points. I might shade them a bit differently but they're all valid points and they have nothing to do with what I've taken issue with.
So what have you taken issue with?
And he doesn't fit the mold of a true point guard or a true shooting guard. He's still one heck of a basketball player IMO and I think that's a lot more relevant than whether or not he fits a specific label.
The problem is that sometimes you say he's "one heck of a" player, and other times you say he's on track to become a top-five player in the league. To most of us, there's quite a gap between those statements. Do you intend for there to be a gap, or do you intend for them to mean basically the same thing? No one is disagreeing that he's a good player. I'd even go far enough to say that he's above average among the league's starting guards, probably. But that's a huge difference from the level of praise you've been prone to heap on him.
