Per Tom Moore, Thaddeus Young appears to be getting visibly upset with his very inexperienced team.
Young had the following to say after practice yesterday:
“Some of the young guys on the team just don’t know,” Young said. “When you’re dealing with them, the frustration level does get it up there because you’re not used to it.
“I’m used to guys who are four- and five-year veterans in this league and that can play. And then you have one- and two-year guys that come in fresh and they’re trying to make a name for themselves.”
Young is the elder statesman on the Sixers with seven years on the team and he’s never had to go through an experience quite like this one. The Sixers are currently 7-19 and lost their last two games by 34 and 39 points while giving up 139 and 130 points in those games respectively. Yes, “Winless for Wiggins” appears to be working, but this is getting bad.
When Thaddeus Young is getting upset with the team, you know things are going bad. Young is one of the nicest, most genuine guys in the league and to see an outburst from him is shocking. Obviously, the recent string of BAD losses is starting to affect Young.
Michael Carter-Williams is slated to practice tomorrow and play Friday vs the Nets. Hopefully the Sixers can get back on track. The Sixers haven’t won a game since December 3rd. I know we all want this team to tank, tank, tank. However, the Sixers need to get a win soon before the internal chemistry of this team is seriously damaged.
Will the Sixers defeat the Nets on Friday?
