    “Euro Player” nice title to have

    Is it just me or doesn’t seem as if Young and Jenning’s have maxed out their potential in the NBA. No real improvements to the bodies or games of each. Jennings will be borderline all star next few years and Young will bounce around. I wonder if being too “swaggy” off the court is the problem?

  • Ben Ireland

    I wonder will Young play with a bottle in his shorts in the L too. Never seen that before haha.

    Definitely agree with you about Nick Young, he’s already 28 (!!) and I can’t envision him taking a big step forward anytime soon. Too early to say for sure about Jennings, but I will say that I thought by now in his career, after 4 seasons in the NBA, his shot selection would have improved.

    Disagree,,,, everyone can’t land in the ideal situation for them every single time. Both of these guys can play big time they have to find that situation that fits their particular game.
    Look at the team’s they’ve landed on,,, they weren’t bad bc of them, they were bad bc those teams lacked efficient talent to compete in a deep league.

  • Da Real

    Valid point, so if they have average/subpar seasons this year then what’s the excuse?

  • Basketball Coach

    Jennings can do a lot more, he’s talented, he’s just a little stubborn at times though. he should work on that.

    At best Nick Young can be like J.R. Smith, similar careers both players have been bench players that could always score, Young needs to put in extra hours in his all-around game if he wants to take his game to the next level.

    As for Jennings, he can still improve his game by becoming more of a PG and less of a shooter, he can improve his shot selection, and he can finally start hitting the weights and get stronger as a PG. Jennings can still be an All-Star.

    Thing is, bad situations don’t make them take bad shots. There’s always an alternative, and if there’s not, then that means they were not able to manufacture good shots. That’s just what their game is now.

  • JL

    By how bad he shook Nick Young on that drive, he should probably be in the L. He is either 6-6 or 6-8, and played at USC, so there’s the connection there. Too bad his position is PF since he’s undersized for that.

    And Nick Young plays for puts the defender on a poster.

    The NBA is a funny mistress. How many times have I watched a game/series and thought ‘so-and-so’ is an all-star caliber player… and they turned out to be nothing much. Not that Nick Young was all-star caliber, but he showed glimpses of greatness in the Memphis series with my Clipps. Okay, Nick Young is a bad example, let’s say Cliff Robinson? Sean Elliot? Stevie Franchise? Jennings is a case in point. After a 55 point rookie splash I had high hopes, but It was a terrible tandem in Buckland, with Ellis, that did him the most harm – that is – wasting father time. Now Detroit’s acquisition reeks of desperation. I behold this truth to be self evident.

    Dumars, like Jordan – a MUCH better player than GM.
    PS Dumars is the most underrated guard in the history of the L. There, I said it.

    Young and Jennings hope to do what Stevie Franchise, Cliff, or Sean Elliot were able to do in their time in the L.
