lol He's starting in the playoffs in his second year. The first year was mostly spent grooming him. This year, he has earned the spot and is now playing at the most important point in the season. Would he have been better off if Minnesota had taken him #1? Would Atlanta or NYC at #2 or #3 have been better for him? None of those teams had USL teams last year, and there's no way he would have been a first team regular with any of those teams in year one. Would he have gotten much run for one of the supposed developers like FCD or NYRB? Even if there are one or two teams that would have given him north of 2500 minutes like you suggest, I'm not sure those places would have been good for his development. Chris Mueller got 2000+ minutes with Orlando this season. Was that season great for his development just because he got a lot of minutes? Seems like things have worked out pretty well for Ebobisse considering Europe didn't work out and he spent two years in the ACC.
