Good read.

I hope he stays a couple years.

Honestly I wasnt sure how he would play out. Initially, I was not a fan of the decision. Nothing personal. I just thought it was "too inside the box".
My thought process started to change when I read an article by Graham that commented on a in game give and take between Hawk and Farmer about letting Nate play through his mistakes. Nate was being his usual spontaneous self and a little out of control. But several of the following possessions Nate found his grove, was in the moment and shined.

The wisdom of knowing to let a kid play through, not just to play through for its sake but because Uncle Larr knew what it took for Hutch to find "his" gear.

That's not saying Clayton wouldn't have offered the same. Or Dunlap and on down the line. The fact that Farmer's experience and ability to simply and tactfully express it made it both palatable and effective. I'm betting there have been countless times this has happened.

All good.
