There's a difference between not having the upside to be elite & not having the ability to improve at something. & I don't think anyone here has used Nash as PP's upside?Yes, this is what I preach relentlessly on what “upside” really is. Sure you’ll always have your one-offs like a Nash and a Curry but it’s annoying to hear people say things like “Look at Nash!”……yeah, and for every Nash are 100 who don’t ever exceed their low ceiling based on their physical limitations.
My biggest issue with the nested quote is the part about it being "silly" to expect improvement. Improvement should always be expected - up to the individual cap.
PP's cap on passing & particularly defense are low. But he has not reached those caps & expecting him to move toward his caps from his 1st to 2nd year is not remotely silly, even if expecting him to suddenly get good at those things would be.
