Why is a 4-point professional debut considered a disappointment when he only averaged 5 PPG in college???

It not about being a disappointment or shouldn’t be, it’s just who he is.
Too bad a worthy player will lose the last spot on the roster so Lebron can have his with. Also too bad Bronny may be resented by his peers without having earned his spot and not being near the caliber of player to be on the roster.

Jarace Walker’s path to playing time in Indiana isn’t quite as clear-cut, which is probably why the Pacers will be experimenting with him at the wing during summer league. Walker was drafted on the premise of being a soft-skilled wrecking ball at the 4 with the length and bulk to play spot minutes at the 5, but his trajectory changed in the G League. Walker’s playmaking ability and confidence handling the ball enabled the Indiana Mad Ants to use him as a pick-and-roll operator, and his comfort shooting 3s from a standstill and (shockingly) off movement at more than twice the volume he saw in college, was a revelation. Indiana plays at a blistering tempo, but they’ve exercised restraint and patience in Walker’s development. Pascal Siakam’s midseason arrival and Obi Toppin’s steadiness as a spark plug 4 has muddied the waters for Walker, though it’s a good problem to have from the Pacers’ perspective. But Walker’s talent might prove too much to ignore. His defensive tools have long been his calling card, and he’s now flashed a well-rounded offensive game that’s fit for the modern era. It seems like only a matter of time before his breakthrough. It could come as soon as this weekend.


But how did he develop these skills after college??

He took those skills from college and presumably enhanced all his skills with a good season of work.
He was a good ball handler and very good passer in college and took his defense to another level while he was here.
