Should be noted that he's led his team to a 13-0 record in the much improved Chinese CBA. Beijing doesn't have the talent or especially the budget of other teams in the league, but you can't argue with the results.
All indications are he's turned himself into a real leader and a very efficient player.
Maybe the lightbulb finally came on? You can't ever really rule that out when it comes to these ridiculously talented guys. Sometimes its a mental thing, and he seems to be in a very good place right now.
