hello, sorry but too much slang for me, i dont understand the meaning of this sentence :

%{player} has certainly been at it for a long time, but you wouldn't know that by looking at his progression as a player. He's definitely been spinning his wheels, because he hasn't lied up to his potential at all.

Pretty sure it is something along these lines - despite not knowing the context.

The player have been working on/putting effort into it for a long time, which one would not be aware of by looking at his progession. He's definitle been working his ass off without any return on the work (https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/spin_one%27s_wheels), as he hasn't lived up to his potential.
