He's doing very well. He is 3rd in the MLS in assist and has lead LA to be the top offense in the league. LA has the number 1 and 2 scorers in the MLS and that in mainly due to what Beckham creates for them.

Beckham and Donovan have been very fun to watch together as much as I despise LA.

I also think the injury had a lot to do with going straight from the La Liga season to the MLS season with very little rest. To top that off, he had to travel between Europe and here with National Team duty. That had to take a toll on his body.
