Let's just say those stats were... very specific

They may be overly specific, but they are accurate. You've gotta give them that.

When Thad arrived in league he was expected to be a star due to his versatile play. He was a beast in 2K games. He was ahead of his time back in 2009. If Thad was drafted in 2015, he could be an All-Star caliber player IMO

Glad to see he got this recognition.

Reminds me of the very specific stats the Wizards social media team always put out with regard to John Wall producing something 'historic'.

I like Thad even during his Sixers days. Never complains and always gives it all for the teams he played for, a true pro. Deserves all the positive attention given to him even if it's as trivial as that stat line.
HE'S USING HYPNOSIS!

That's just Fox Sports Indiana. I've watched like 5 consecutive games of their feed this year and they get hyped up very, very easily. If I am not mistaken, they called 2 consecutive-win games a streak at some point.
I also like Thad. He is one of the most average, consistent players for me. I honestly can't think of a team where he wouldn't fit in.

Thaddeus gotta be one of the most average NBA player in today's league.

But seems his consistency has been a great help for the Pacers to be in the playoffs picture. He hated tanking as a 76er and requested for a trade, perhaps could be a fun event if he met them in the playoffs.

The derailing posts have been deleted, again. I don't want to have to keep cleaning up topics like this. If you can't get along, just stay away from each other and leave each other alone.

Thaddeus Young reminds of the post 08-09 Antawn Jamison. A guy who can get it done, but leaves you scratching your heads sometimes in regards to his potential. I always thought Jamison could have been more than he was (even before 08-09), same with Young. He has the tools, but never seemed to have that hunger. I've always seen him as a guy going through the motions as opposed to taking his game to that next level. Indiana needs him to step it up if they intend on making any noise in the postseason. They are currently seated 4th in the east, it's going to take above average performances from Young/Turner and Collison when he gets back, as well as Oladipo actually playing like a next level all-star.
