http://www.grantland.com/blog/the-trian ... to-kill-meOn November 4, in New York, the Sixers lost to the Knicks, 100-84. Nick Young played 32 minutes, scored five points on 2-10 shooting, and had a plus/minus of -29. Minus. Twenty-nine. That’s when it hit me: This is happening. Nick Young isn’t on Twitter or in photos or video lowlights. He’s on the Sixers. He’s a Sixer. He is part of my life now, and like a ghost that haunts your apartment, you need to make peace with these things. So, I decided to live-blog the Sixers game against New Orleans last night. I fully anticipate this to read like a Sullivan Ballou letter from Ken Burns’s The Civil War. Spoiler: That guy dies. Cue up “Ashokan Farewell.” Let’s go.
I enjoyed reading the comments from beleaguered Wizards fans (is there any other kind?), expressing their schadenfreude that Nick Young is now Somebody Else's Problem.
Got into a Twitter argument with a guy about Young. He seems to think Young will be just fine and that he's a good replacement for Lou Williams, who they let leave. I was about to post some variation on "he'll have to learn the hard way," but then I had the quick thought of how fans typically evaluate players, and this guy will probably end up arguing the Sixers just needed to give Young more playing time.
