From ages 19-25, we expect growth, even in the smallest way. Whether it’s a fraction of an increase in field goal percentage, an increase in scoring per 36 minutes, or a slightly lower defensive rating, fans love to see improvement, instead of seeing a stagnant player. Look at a guy like Indiana Pacers’ forward Paul George. George struggled to get on the court as a rookie, but once he did in the playoffs, he showed huge defensive potential, guarding Derrick Rose in the first round, and showing some offensive prowess. Now, in George’s second season, he’s become a huge factor on both ends of the ball, and a key fixture in Indiana’s long-term plans. While George is flourishing in Indiana, a team in Sacramento must be wondering if their star could make the same progress, and soon.
