Nick Young Doc Will Air Tonight

The folks at ESPN2 have changed the air time of the Nick Young documentary titled "Second Chance Season." It will now air tonight at 10:30 p.m. Not sure at this point if or when it will re-air but go ahead and either watch it or set your tivo because I hear it's pretty good.

Again, the site for the film is www.secondchanceseason.com.

I'll tune in if they are going to show Nick playing defense. Oh, they're not? Never mind then.

I got a documentary, too. It's titled... "How to both love and hate Gilly at the Same Time".

great, been wondering when this would be available to the DC area. Read the article on this back before his was drafted here.

Got my tivo set! Thanks Ivan for all the recent updates!

I'm recording it too. I watched the trailer and was surprised at what Nick has been through. I'm looking forward to it.

Ivan how can you say Etan is "solidly penciled in as Haywood's backup"? I have seen no indication that Eddie is ready to make that call considering he missed an entire season and Blatche played well in that role last year.

Don't you think Eddie will keep an open competition in training camp between Etan and Blatche?

Posted by: juandixonformvp | September 24, 2008 10:09 PM | Report abuse

If Etan's healthy there won't be an open competition, because Blatche isn't a C and Thomas is.

"As far as Etan's role, it sounds as though he is solidly penciled in as Brendan Haywood's backup with Andray Blatche as the third guy and rookie JaVale McGee fitting in where he can"

So the first big man off the bench will be Etan and not Blatche? There is no way Etan steals minutes from Blatche unless he really stinks it up this year, Blatche is now a key component of the team, it's Etan who has to fight his way back into the rotation.

I saw it. It was pretty good. The most interesting part of this documentary was following the life of Nick Young's brother's killer. He really seems like a normal guy. And how Nick's dad refuses to ever meet him and would prefer the guy dead.

I saw a snippet of this documentary while channel surfing.

It was funny.

The scene was where Nick's coach was berating him and calling him out for being selfish and trying to score 50 pts while losing sight of championship glory.

A mopey Nick was speechless.

Now, Nick probably would tell that coach to take his advice and shove it, b/c if he learned nothing else from Gilby, he learned that in order to get paid in the league, you've got to put the ball as many times in the hoop as possible....championship/playoff glory be darned.

Juan - As Kal said, AB is not a "5", Etan is the "5". AB is a "4". I would think AB would be first off of the bench to sub in for AJ and not Haywood. AB would sub in for Haywood last year only because Etan was out and they did not have another "5" on the team.

Now, I am not quite sure why EJ referenced AB as the 3rd "5" because he is not a "5". Hopefully EJ meant AB would come in spelling AJ at the "4". That "4" spot is AB's natural position, not the "5".

I would only assume DMac would come in to spell Caron at the "3". You have to remember EJ has a serious "comfort level" with Etan for some odd reason. EG knew and knows that and that is why he tried so hard to trade Etan these pass two off seasons because EG knew EJ would never give Haywood a fair shot at minutes as long as he had Etan (and Ruffin) here as options.

Now that Haywood has proven what he can do when he gets "fair" minutes (i.e. by default last season), EJ has no choice but to play him until Haywood plays himself out of the starting role. Now I do not believe he will, and hopefully EJ won't be too quick on "yanking him" just to get Etan in the game like he used to two seasons ago.

Etan will be a hot commodity this next offseason because he will be in the last year of his contract. A team looking to create cap space in the year LB becomes a free agent (I think I have that year right, not sure) will be lining up at the Wiz door looking to trade for Etan.

I think EG and EJ have different opinions on Etan but other than that I think they are on the same page with everything else.

If healthy, I expect DSong to be first off the bench at 4. EJ wants to go with vet experience, not youth development.

Posted by: Anonymous | September 25, 2008 9:39 AM | Report abuse

With Etan back, hopefully Blatche gets his minutes at the 4, and Jamison gets some minutes spelling Caron at the 3. Jamison gives up something defending at the 3, but if Blatche and Etan/Haywood are on the court at the time, they might be enough to erase Jamison's mistakes.

Etan sucks. Blatche can play the 5 in spells and small ball, but Etan is the guy to come in against bulky centers. Hopefully we can use his big contract to our advantage and make a trade at some point. Etan is a waste of space, but we'll need to give him a little PT to show he is healthy.

Posted by: tk3k | September 25, 2008 10:34 AM | Report abuse

Don't worry, it's not a good thing to be labeled as a "center" in Eddie's offense. Eddie will probably play more "center-less" offense than play the backup center. Blatche will get more playing time if Eddie does not consider him as a "center." LOL

Posted by: Sagaliba | September 25, 2008 12:30 PM | Report abuse

The problem is, like BF1 said, EJ may feel obligated to play backup center (and still play small ball) and cut into starting center's minutes.

-----------------

You're absolutely right BF#1.... Teams will be looking at both Etan Thomas' and Antonio Daniels' expiring contracts next year - so they can make room for the extraordinary Free Agent class in 2010...

Remember, it's not JUST LeBron James that teams will have a shot at. Other players will be free agents as well, like: Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh, Paul Pierce, Dirk Nowitzki, Tracy McGrady, and Steve Nash (just to name a few).

Teams will be looking to pick up expiring contracts to have a shot at some of those big names in 2010. New York and New Jersey have already positioned themselves well for the "LeBron Sweepstakes".

Look for Ernie Grunfeld to pick up some very nice talent in exchange for Thomas and Daniels, right around the trade deadline next year.

Posted by: Rook | September 25, 2008 12:57 PM | Report abuse

While I'm sure Grunfeld will be looking to make deals, I wouldn't get my hopes up too high about a blockbuster trade. Most of the players teams try to unload in those kinds of deals are less than A-list. Every now and then a team will get lucky (e.g., the Lakers and Gasol) but that's the exception more than the rule. The Wizards aren't likely to get franchise player for nothing. Most of the offers will probably be guys with talent who have some combo of bloated, overvalued contracts of their own, injury-issues, or attitude problems (or all three). High-risk, high-reward types like Eddy Curry or Zach Randolph.

DC Man88

How did you come up with NYoung only learning from Gilbert to throw up as many shots as possible? How many games did Gilbert play last year, less than 15? Your jealousy filled imagination is an embarassment to yourself.

Nick Young can probably glean from Gilby's career stat sheet that the more shots he takes, the more points he'll score, no matter how many playoff appearances or disappearances he's made.

All that adds up to is about 65 mil + 111 mil.

NY has had ample time to talk to Gilby about this since he and DMac lived with Gilby last season.

judging by the footage i saw of Young in high school, he already had a "green light" entrenched in his head when he was on the floor.
