I can't believe so many people are willing to bash this guy when they have never even seen him play. The coaches have seen something they like and are willing to be patient with him. There are people on this board who think even if they have seen a player play, they are qualified to make a judgement on a particuliar player. Meanwhile, they struggle to get the pizza sign to light up on top of their car.
The coaches and scouts spend hours upon hours watching film and watching players practice. They have seen something in this kid. They are not cutting him, they are not putting him on the IR, they are preparing him to contibute. Those are the facts. Wether he will pan out or flame out is another story. Ultimately we have to trust the coaches and wait and see.
