I think expectations usually take the form of a probabalistic kind of


statement. Nobody says "JH can't and won't play in the NBA".. they say "JH could get an opportunity but I don't think his skillset lends itself to sticking for x and x reason (defense/athleticism) and I think the odds of him hanging around are low and only likely if he finds the perfect fit/system"..
In that sense I don't think JH has outplayed expectations. He's the exact player we thought he'd be.. he just happened to find the right team/system that has let him find a roster spot and playing time. He certainly didn't stick on the Cavs, and I'm not sure if he'd be playing at all for 90% of the league's teams. But he found himself in the right situation.

I don't really remember MS predictions.. but I think we all knew that he could shoot the ball and for him to have a chance he'd have to shoot 3's because he wasn't going to be a plus defender or rebounder. And that's pretty much who he is today.

I think people might be misrecalling the nature of the criticisms/doubts
