This year, especially in the middle of the season, he seemed to have some very tough stretches despite staying healthy. He had career low field goal percentage and a lot of times he seemed burnt out. However, at the end of the year he played very well. I think a lot of that is due to FIFA and lingering injuries from last year. This year, the playoffs seemed to rejuvenate his game and he played with much more energy and defense in the playoffs.
In the playoffs he averaged 21.6 PPG with 48% shooting with one of the best defenders in the league, Luol Deng, guarding him. He seemed like a completely different player than from the middle of the season. He played w/ energy and focus that we had not seen in a while.
Is this the Danny that we will see next year? I think that this is a very important question because if this is the Danny that we can get used to than that will turn him into more of a Paul Pierce than a Shareef Abdur Raheem if he doesn't play with the same intensity.
