    Default Patric Young on Jonas Valanciunas: "I know for a fact he is not a lottery pick"

    Conversation on Twitter:

    RR: What did you think of Jonas Valanciunas?

    Patric: I know for a fact he is not a lottery pick. He has potential though and he is still a good player though and a good guy. I think its a good investment but yall cant give him every foul call lol

    RR: Is that what you think happened in your game?

    Patric: I know thats what happened 3 Lithuanian refs in Lithuanina and their superstar is playing come on lol.

    So what does that say of Patric Young?

    He managed only 3pts/3rebs and a number of fouls compared to 23/11 for Jonas.

    Also, they were quite chippy with one another especially in the 3rd quarter. Young sounds like a kid trying to save face after getting punked.

    I know for a fact that Valanciunas handed Patrick's ass back to him after the final whistle.

    Weird, because I read a quote somewhere (can't find it) where he said some very complimentary things about him. But really, if Valanciunas isn't a lottery pick, that's not saying very much for himself. Kids say the stupidest things. Apparently he's still got to learn when not to say something.

    Talks trash on Twitter, but did nothing to warrant it after his on-court performance. Tough guy lol.

    And what is he basing his decision on? the smacking he got from V the other day? honestly I hope the two teams meet again during the tournament so he can get another whooping just to keep him in line.

    man people are getting pretty defensive when one of his peers criticizes him.....

    .... scouts know all, fans know all, his peers know nothing (although I bet if he complimented him the same people would be mentioning, "hey look at what his opponent said about him")

    The Americans were facing Egypt. Chile isn't even in the competition.

    He was drafted 5th, so by definition... NBA.net does not have Patric Young ranked at all. It is just a kid making a comment that he hasn't correctly thought out.

    Uh, if Dwight Howard criticized Valanciunas after dominating him, I might give the opinion more respect, but to say Young is one of his peers? Really?

    The amusing part is this:

    First he says, "I konw for a fact he is not a lottery pick."

    Then he says, "Just like you guys im entitled to my own opinion. Im just a 19 year old kid thats seen him play once so you dnt have to listen to me."

    Do you not see the contradiction? Only seen him play once, but he knows for a fact, as if he was an actual scout? If he released his scouting report on the top 14 players in the 2011 NBA draft, would you bet money on it? You don't have to like Valanciunas to see the humor in that.

    Young is a funny guy:

    Patric4Young to RaptorsRhetoric: "Your entitled to your opinion your not an nba scout or a gm or a coach."

    Hendrix_Grizz to Patric4Young: "You're entitled to your opnnion too but next time youy state a "fact" remember that you're not a GM, scout or coach either. & u're a great player. Keep in mind that u just said you seen him play once. Scouts & GM's have been scouting the kid for yrs."

    Patric4Young to Hendrix_Grizz: "Yea but I am a TOP NBA prospect glory to God"

    Someone needs to tell the kid about the greatest player to have played the game (Jordan) being a horrendous talent evaluator.
