nick young

All the haters that say he can only score must have changed their minds a lil bit with him outplaying wade and playing great defense on wade also and make wade work on defense. He could be a star if given the mins just needs more clock

The thing about the game

The thing about the game tonight was that he made some extra passes for easier shots. He usually shoots everytime he gets the ball no matter what. That was encouraging to see, and he did (as you mentioned) play solid D on the ball esp against Wade.

I'm not a hater but I'm not
I'm not a hater but I'm not near as high on Young as you all.  He has had a couple good games recently.  However, his PER for the year is still terrible.  Matter fact it is 6.5. The league average is 15.  He still has to improve a lot to be a star, matter fact he has to do that to even become a reliable starter.  He also took 23 shots tonight.  I didn't watch the game but I'll take your word for it.  I'm glad to see him step up to the challenge & make Wade work hard.

Gotta watch the games...that

Gotta watch the games...that PER stuff means nothing especially when you consider the amount of shots he's taken or lack thereof. He's a talented offensive player. That's why I don't even know or care to familiarize with efficiency ratings...they make you think too much about how a player plays, especially if you don't watch the players' game.

His PER last season was
His PER last season was below average too.  Yeah watching the games is important too but efficiency ratings are pretty accurate.  The PERs take into account nearly every aspect of the game so you get an overall feel for how a player is performing.

one good game

I personally like nick young and am waiting for him to succeed but i going to wait on calling him an allstar, he could be something close to a less-ego JR Smith

inconsistent

Inconsistent, but very talented. Not sure if he will ever be a consistently good player. Has driving skills, but settles for the outside J too much. Been a fan of his since his college days though, and expected more than I have seen out of him. We will C if he keeps bringing it like he played tonight everynight.
