Was he over hyped? He has not had a good year at all. In fact, what has he really done since he was 16 years old? For all the praise he has gotten he sure looked lost in the World Championships this year, and he did not look like the number one pick last night. Everyone is trying to make excuses for him. My point is, at least in my view, he is not playing up to his billing. Enough excuses, lets see some results. I think that much of his hype is based on what he did at 16. Who really cares what he did at 16???
