I’m hating on the idea that someone would avoid hard work. Especially when

hard work is a requirement of the job. Yes hard work in the past to get you where you want to be, but once you get there I find the idea of coasting abhorrent.

What other players in what other sports have their minutes cut to less than half for their “protection?” Or do teams expect their professional athletes to be professionals in taking care of themselves, and almost all are?

I personally liked the kid a lot when he played at Dook. He couldn’t help DSPN’s slobbering and his attitude was clearly un-Dook like. But now reasonable folks can have some confidence that his family took a boat load of payments to send him to K. That’s cheating and it’s in the most arrogant way possible. And there’s also now evidence of laziness. I haven’t written the kid off but my view has also dimmed that this kid will be different in the ways greatness requires.
