Thaddeus Young doesn’t remember the date from his freshman year, his only year, at Georgia Tech. He remembers the occasion, though. He and his classmates were involved in a basketball practice. There were four recruited first-year Yellow Jackets in 2007-08. Coach Paul Hewitt observed their various petty crimes against the game of basketball and called them all together for a discussion. Or, more accurately, a harangue. “He told us, ‘All of your high school coaches should be in jail for child abuse, because they didn’t teach you anything,’” Young told Sporting News. “There was a lot of learning that first couple weeks when I got there.”
Even though Domantas Sabonis has played well when starting at center, Indiana Pacers coach Nate McMillan currently has no plans to move Myles Turner or Thaddeus Young to the bench. “We are not at that point where we want to experiment,” McMillan told Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan. “Thaddeus is our starting 4, and Sabonis is coming off the bench for us.”
