I think it is more a combination of factors (like a lot of things are)

Perhaps he wasn't catching on to the importance of learning the packline.

Perhaps he tried to learn the packline but wasn't very good at it.

Perhaps CTB said in year-end chat, "You know, if you don't apply yourself to the fullest on Defense, it's hard to see you getting a lot of minutes." (or words to that affect).

Perhaps it was NONE of these

But he's a GUARD. And we have Kihei, Beekman, and now Franklin at those two positions -- already a little crowded. A Swingman you say? So even if JAR would agree with that, there is Murphy (maybe) and Taine Murray coming in.

So -- plain and simple, OF COURSE playing time is an issue -- the positions that JAR plays are already "crowded" -- doesn't mean he couldn't play 35 mins per game -- put does it look likely to ANYONE that he would?
