Why are Wizards fans so take em or leave em about my boy Nick Young? Nick Young finally got a chance to start this season after sitting behind Gilbert and his antics. He and Blatche were part of the old Wizards culture. This year we finally shipped out the crazy selfish GA and gave Nick a chance to shine. And by golly he did shine!!!! The boy is bad, replacable yes, but why would we. We officially have our star point guard and a sharp shooting shooting guard. <--- thats Nick!!
Then Nick Young gets hurt and all of a sudden Jordan Crawford is his replacement and Nick Young is Expendable... I beg to differ and I beg your pardon.
Wasn't NY tearing it up before he got hurt, he just needs confidence and a more serious attitude. But the talent and the willingness to get better and be instructed is there.
J. Crawford, hes good, dont get me wrong. BUTTTTT the dude came to Washington with nothing to lose Literally. He hadn't played all year basically so he was, should I say famished to play. And I can't say that ANY of the games tht he played in actually mattered. It was no holds bard, pretty much anything went because so many guys were hurt (NY, R Lewis, Howard, Blatche and even booker) and the roster was filled out by D-leaguerds and rookies. So Crawford got to play care free.
Nick Young has paid his dues, yes he has lots of room for improvement, but hes gotten the "take me or leave em" tag undeservingly. I want him signed ASAP and if anything we can always find another Crawford.
But lets not be too quick to devalue NY.
