Has this guy even gotten better since year 1?

Garland was pretty bad in year 1 and 2. Year 3 was when he made his jump but I'm not sure he has made any significant progress since then.

I do think if he had any ceiling left that it will only be achieve without Mitchell. Garland is too willing to be the #2 on the team and if he can defer to Mitchell he will do it.
 
He's pressing not unlike Mobley was at the beginning of the year. He will settle in I am pretty sure and get that 3p attempt rate up again.

We have seen him be great already this year, but seems like he has to work his way into it.

I am actually much more worried about the chemistry in general and Donovan in specific than I am about Darius. He will come around, I don't know if the team as a whole will.

Feels like a waste of Max's good play and that is pissing me off
 
He’s been way too careless and lacking in concentration. He needs to be much more locked in on every possession as the teams point guard.

I do wonder if the pace the Cavs are playing at is too quick for Garlands liking and he is just trying to save himself for later in the game.

I thought for a while that the pace Garland wants to play at doesn't really lineup with playing two smaller guards. He just likes a slow pace in the half court. If you want two smaller guards to thrive, a fast pace should be what you aim for so it tires out the opposing defense. I'm just not sure Garland can operate by playing with the mindset to play fast all the time.
 
His 3pa are so low this season, only 5.1 per game. That’s unacceptable and is on our coaching staff. A shooter as good as him should be launching at least 7/8 a game.. Curry takes almost per game for example

I think it's because he knows he's not shooting them well right now maybe due to injury
