Re: thaddeus young moves to starting lineup - some questions -
I watched the Sixers-Wizards game, and your right, the kid can flat out rebound. He was pulling the ball down with one hand numerous times during the game.
The most impressive thing for me though was his defense on Jamison. Held him to 6/23 shooting and at times, Washington couldn't get him the ball at all because of Young playing him so tightly. And no I don't blame this on the lack of ball handlers/passers on the Wizards team that day. Almost anybody can make a simple post entry pass, but Young was fantastic.
Most of his shots came from inside the key (made some good cuts to get himself open). I think he took one outside shot from between the elbow of the key and the 3 point line, and it went in and looked smooth for a left handed shooter. He is working specially with someone from the Sixers in that department apparently according to a commentator, so that will develop as well.
