For Young, leaving Los Angeles, particularly after such a brief stay, was difficult.
“I was a little disappointed,” Young said of not coming back to the Clippers in the offseason. “But that was my second free agency, so I’d seen a lot. I knew once Jamal Crawford was on the books, he was a vet that had been around the block a couple times.
“It is tough. I’ve gotten more homesick [this season] because I was in L.A. for most of the whole year [in 2011-12].”
Aww makes me even sadder. Sounds like he wanted to come back but the team opted for Crawford instead. I understand Crawford is better but I would have loved him on the team as well.. taking 100 percent of Willie Green's minutes this year. Then next year when Billups likely leaves we would have Crawford/Young which is solid. I think maybe the front office viewed it as.. they are a bit redundant but Crawford is better at what they do.
Jrue Holiday in his post game interview said the Clippers defense was the best he's seen all year . Probably because no other team has TWO defensive PG's like Bledsoe+CP3 on him all game and the Clippers help D was amazing today.
When the Clippers play D like this (like they did during 32-9 start) they are pretty unbeatable.
