Wasn't he playing a lot in Chicago? What happened?
He did. There were great expectations for him but he never lived up to them. Basically, he just did not want to play hard. He also had problems with the play book. He was constantly out of position on defense and screwed up plays on offense because he could not remember what to do.
The final straw was when he was just asked by the coaches to hustle down the court on defense. He refused to even do this and just jogged down liked always did. After this highly public incident of openly defying the coaches, no one would stand up for him. When he was traded everyone was glad to see him go, coaches, fans and sport writers.
