A possible top 4 seed in the East playoffs vs. a team that’s competing for lottery balls, and the Pacers trail 61-47. What he’s witnessing is inexcusable. “I cussed everybody out, including myself,” Young says. “I basically told them, ‘What are we going to do? Who are we? At some point we got to take a stand. We’re way better than this. We’re a completely different team than they are and we should be running them out of the gym right now.’”
Young is the glue that keeps the Pacers together. His personality is very calm and laid back, but make no mistake, he speaks up when the team needs it. He’s had to do it on several occasions already this season after the Pacers relinquished numerous double-digit leads. “He’s kind of that E.F. Hutton-type guy that when he speaks, everybody listens,” Pacers coach Nate McMillan said, referencing to the successful stock brokerage firm and its memorable advertising line. “He’s not saying anything just to be talking. … He’s doing it for a reason.”
