I think you are overrating him to be honest. All I saw from him last season was a selfish player who is a good scorer, nothing more. With the right coach and system, he can flourish though. Personally I always thought he'd be better at pg as a Billups type player.
I think OJ is going to be a superstar. Cant believe Kevin McHale traded him for Kevin Love. That will go down as 1 of the worst trades since he was traded with Parrish for Joe Barry Carrol
In case you didn't notice, Love had a pretty damn good season as well. Recorded the most double doubles out of all the rookies and he hardly had any playing time til Jefferson got injured anyway. Probably the most underrated rookie by far.
Trade was pretty fair in terms of talent, just dumb for both teams. Minn already had a pf and Memphis needed help in the frontcourt.
