I wonder if this kid has the desire and mindset (not the talent) to become a good NBA player.

He's averaging 21.1 points on 45.7% from the filed over 15 games played (44.3% from 3) and 4.7 rebounds.  Let's not read too much into a single bad night of shooting.

These stats don't mean he will be a contributor on an NBA roster, but he's not a bust yet, especially considering his age and draft position.

Can we give this guy some time? He is really young. We have bailed on Billups, Johnson and heck, even Gerald Green and they all turned into good to great pros. Lets take some time on him shall we?

Shooting strokes like his do not grow on trees, I say give him at least three years.

He's super young. Give him time. He still has the potential to be a really nice trade chip some day.

Just look at Klay Thompson. It took him 3 years of college to be able to be a contributer. James Young has the potential to be our Klay Thompson. Just look at the links and compare.

rollie, since you watch the games (thank you) would you be able to tell us about young's defense? i know his offense will not be a problem. but given his slight build and youth, defense seems to be lacking.

is he making any improvements? and if so, how?

thanks in advance.

Oh c'mon.

He's shooting 44% on 8 x 3PTA for the season. Best in the DLeague after Seth Curry.

i'm sorry,i think its too soon but i don't think he has any smart in him-small sample size-d league not very defensive but don't see any mimicing of bradley or smart -still getting his game legs maybe-this year was a waste-should have stayed at kentucky-he is sort of, so smooth  his effort might not show through-he needs so much at his young age to be NBA force -dantome has proven himself for years as a shooter--if young doesn't work on being anything but catch and shoot --when dwight powell played for red clawsplayed with an intensity and a different kind of motor-i haven't warmed up to this james game-very little edge t o it -but a sweet stroke and being a drop dead shooter might be a different breed-seems straight line ,very little ability to create,no right hand-------

thanks. it seems the defense will have to be a work in process for a while longer.
