Ariza is averaging 15/6/3 with almost 2 steals per game while shooting 43% from the three point line this year. He's still a good defender as well. Ariza wasn't a mistake.
Morey has been beating up on other GMs since he started. Sure, he isn't perfect, but he doesn't make mistakes like other GMs do. He makes far less of them and wins the majority of his moves.
