Cool Thaddeus Young deserves more Playing Time

he gets my vote for the most underrated and underutilised player in the league, can't fault Collins for not playing him more as their team is pretty stacked with wings

Would benefit hugely from a trade imo

i think he is perfect where he is. he is pretty much a lamar odom type where you use him off the bench to exploit matchups. He's not a PF. He's also not a SF. in the right role, he will flourish.

I agree, but I believe it is not the only one not getting the minutes he deserves in Philly, Marreese Speights also deserves to play more than he plays. I'm not sure that it's the player most underutilised, there are some others that are in the same situation.

he doesn't quite get Odom-type minutes though, he would be insanely productive if he did imo

He does need to improve on D however

The role Thad Young is in? Its fine. He plays behind Brand/Iggy. Thad can come in and pick which matchup he can exploit and take advangtage off. Instance offense off the bench (best scoring bench in the NBA).

Marreese Speights is a bad defensive player. Be it in the post, help, altering shots when people attack the rim.

Marreese Speights doesnt play with his back to the basket. Most of his scoring come from him facing up and shooter a jumper. He cant create his own offense.

Marreese Speights flops. A big who not only doesnt play with his back to the basket but also flops? All world fail.

Marreese Speights isnt much of a rebounder. Given the things I've listed up to now? You think he would embrace just 1 area of basketball and excel. Through hustle, dedication, passion. You see Humphries in NJN beasting on the glass. Say what you want. Contract year, bad team etc etc. But he's out there doing something. Not Speights. He's no factor at either end on the glass.

So how does he deserves more minutes? What other players are in similar situations on the Sixers? Name them and I'll break it down like I did with Speights.

Did you watch the game last night when Hawes got the technical? The camera cut to Collins looking down his bench directly at Speights and talking and it took a full 3 secs for Speights to realize he was being told to sub in without it being April fools.

Gave that look like "lol Coach you play too much.......oh you're serious okay yeah I'll check in".

If you cut Thad's right arm off it wouldn't affect his game at all.

I did not mean the Sixers when I said that there are other players in the same situation, I said in general. About Philly, I only spoke of Marreese, because I sincerely believe he has talent to play more minutes, but I do not deny it has its shortcomings. Yet I congratulate you for the post, I really liked the analysis.

Thad doesnt spread the floor which I think is what the Clippers need at SF. He could play SF for the Clippers but would it be the fit your team is looking for? I dont know, I'd say it isnt.

I like my SFs to do 1 of two things if they cant do both. 1. Perimeter threat, ability to shoot and spread the floor 2. Perimeter defender. That does neither well. So I dont want that in a starting SF. Would rather Thad as a 6th man spelling the PF/SF positions.

I don't wanna hate or anything.. But isn't this the kind of thing you'd want to discuss in the Sixers part of this board.

Thad and Travis are not similar. Unless you thinks all black people look alike.
