You are right to point out the KT came into the league after 3 years. It is pointless to argue how high a players ceiling is (how many white guys with an outside shots were dubbed a potential Larry Bird, or Dirk Nowitzki).

I will just say that I am 6"1 and white, so when I was born, my ceiling was John Stockton. Unfortunately, things didn't quite work out that well.

James Young is tall, athletic and has a good shooter's touch, so he has a good chance of sticking in the league. If he every becomes anything more than a bench player - we are ahead of the curve.

why wouldnt we as celtics fans? people here frequently mention mickey's performances in maine. so it seems fair to include young and rozier as well.

because he's been killing it in the D league for a year. It doesn't really mean much.

I'm rooting for Young to figure it out. We knew he'd be a project when we drafted him, so I'm not surprised he's still in the D-League, but as long as he's there and tearing it up and not showing any signs of regression/giving up, I'm ok with it. That to me says his mind is in the right place and it's only a matter of time tell he puts it together.

It doesn't mean a lot, but I'd rather he be killing it down there than getting exposed.

Young and Rozier recalled for trip to BKN/ATL with Smart not making the trip and Turner described as "available".

Mickey stays with Claws.

Makes sense based on need.  No need to call Mickey up to ride the pine.

The other two prospects are looking more promising than Young.

 Mickey is the most impressive imo. I saw him shoot a couple of threes against the Canton Charge... which to go along with everything else he does well, I think he has a very good chance to be our Draymond Green. Looking back I can see why he was given that historic contract by Danny Ainge, this kid rarely makes mistakes and a can do it all!.

Rozier, from what I seen from him, can seem hesitant on offense though his ball handling and quickness allows him to get into the paint, he takes too long to decide what he's going to do with the ball, he can finish at the rim pretty good and that jumpshot definitely looks better than Young's at this point.

maybe you should watch the games before you comment? i've seen him play many times in maine. young looks vastly improved over last year. he is playing physical ball on defense and on the boards - he's always had a sweet stroke, but he's visibly more muscular and aggressive now.

so instead of looking like a good d-league player, he's looking more like an NBA player.
