OK, with all the talk going around about the futures of Blatche and McGee, nobody has really broached this subject. At least as far as I've seen. So I wanted to get the vibe from you guys: Does anyone see Nick Young as being our starting 2 guard anytime in the (near) future?
Nobody disputes that he's got some growing up to do. But I don't think anyone disputes his talent either. Not to mention the fact that he's the prototypical NBA shooting guard. 6'6-6'7, long, athletic, can shoot AND slash. It's been awhile since we've had that around here. Obviously the last guy was Jerry Stackhouse, though he switched between there and SF upon Jordan's arrival. But looking at the 2, Young and Stackhouse are very similar. Similar bodies, similar playing styles. The biggest difference in my opinion is Stackhouse had more of a meantstreak, or a more aaggressive attitude at least. And that's the biggest knock on Young - he's too layed back. I personally didn't like Stackhouse, but not because of his game. The fact is, if Nick could find a way to emulate Stack ON the court, we could have a very, VERY good shooting guard on our hands for the next 8 years or so.
Again, as with all of the Wizards youth, we are talking about the fulfillment of potential. But THIS is a topic I haven't really seen broached on here. Not as long as I've been on anyway.
