I hope we have not given up on Joe Young. I watched nearly every game he played at Oregon. The kid is clutch. If the Ducks were close at the end you knew Mighty Joe would bring it home. The only college player I remember draining big shot after big shot like Joe was Jay Edwards.
Young has the handles and hops to go off the dribble and will drop the dagger from deep. We've seen the dunks in summer league. He needs minutes
You are right he isn't a 1. The kid is a scorer plan and simple and asking him to distribute the ball because he's not an inch or 2 taller. That's a waste of talent.
His game is very similar to Hill's. I think he a better athlete. I am affeaid we won't see it here the way the teams currently constructed.
Just for information purposes only but this is what G Hill has always been capable of if used properly and not put in a situation where he has to distribute the ball:
But we saw it plenty in 2014 when PG went down
Teague at the Point at Hill at the point would have been one hell of a backcourt with Hills length and ability to affect shots
Joe Young is a player in a similar mold....Undersized shooting guard whos not going to be a good floor general and create shots for others but can shoot the hell out of the ball. That's how he needs to be used. I suspect however that we have given up on him
I use it to see which players have the most chemistry out on the court and who is playing with the most energy and GR3 was definitely part of that along with Stuckey and Miles off the bench. GR3 just didn't get shots up this game but the point is that doesn't prevent him from doing other things to be effective.
