Remember how inexplicably awful Nick was in Vegas last month during the summer league? Well, it looks like we may have just found out why he looked so out of sync.
Ben from Blazers Edge was in Vegas for the SL and recently wrote up a little report on his experiences for Hardwood Paroxysm, and in his report there's a little tidbit that helps clear up why Nick Young was so out of sorts that week:
On the court there is no harmony. There are players who have spots assured. They loaf. There are players who need their names on the back of their jerseys, othewise no one would know who they are. They grind. There is a young men, OJ Mayo, looking to make a highlight film; there is another, Nick Young, looking at the fly honeys. There is a mountain man, Steven Hill, whose beard inspires more cheers than his play; there is a play the game the right way plodder, Josh Davis, who has every white scout over 60 years old wishing him the best. Of course, the same scouts are hesitant to encourage their management to sign Davis, lest they be laughed out of the room.
But hey, look at the bright side, Andray was in Vegas too and he performed quite well. Maybe next year we can petition the NBA to have the Summer League moved to Philadelphia.
