People here know I try to be respectful of everyone's opinion and not talk down to others but you are really proving that you have no clue about Thad Young's game and base all this solely on his stats.
No one thought of Young as a shooter. Not a mid-range, spot, deep, or any other type of shooter. The kid is a 6'8" 225 uber-athlete who played the interior all through high school. The guy picked Georgia Tech because the staff there told him they would develop his perimeter game and not force him to play inside. Every other school planned on making him a PF.
I'm sure you'll reply to this by saying you watched Young a bunch of times but at this point I really don't believe you. Seriously, even in his Jordan Classic highlight reel you can see the ball-handling and shooting needs major work.
