    [QUOTE=Quixotic;92145]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? [QUOTE]

    Peer : one that is of equal standing with another : equal; especially : one belonging to the same societal group especially based on age, grade, or status

    How is Young not one of his peers? Did he just not play against him? Will they not enter the NBA in the same year? Whats the age difference between them? Have either played in the NBA? Are they both not playing at the same class level right now? Young is a peer of Jonas. Dwight is not.

    Is Dwight a scout? Does he release scouting reports? Huh... see the contradiction?

    (by the way I think Young is probably wrong... I'm just amazed at the number of people that are attacking/mocking him and yet have less experience with Jonas than Young does. Tim W. has it spot on.... Young's statement doesn't say much for Young.)

    We're attacking and mocking him because we would do that to anybody who goes from an epic thrashing to immediately trashing.

    It's kind of like somebody getting ktfo in the Octagon (UFC?) and after he wakes up he says that he didn't think the other fighter was particularly good. I've never seen that happen before. A) It's a classless thing to say about somebody period. B) It verges on the ridiculous if he crushes you like an ant.

    I'm imagining Patrick walking around the American dressing room and saying how Valanciunas isn't all that. And I'm going to school him next time and every time he turns his back his own team mates are rolling their eyes at him. Sure Patrick, you sure are gonna get him. sniff...

    Maybe Young's comment was legit. Maybe what he recognized as a blur on the court was the man he was supposed to be covering. It's hard to evaluate a player when you keep sending him to the line for free points or when the whistle blows and the play stops. I think if he were given some truth serum this is what he would of said...

    "That Valanciunas guy was way too fast for me. From my vantage point I know for a fact I only saw his ass end so I couldn't tell if he deserves to be a lottery pick I'll tell you something though...I now know what I need to work on to improve my game...Everything...Anyway what's the big deal...I'm more of a 4 not a 5"

    You can declare whatever group definition of "equal" you want (case in point: Valanciunas and Young are peers, but not Valanciunas and an NBAer had they played each other), so it's kind of moot arguing with you, but no, I do not consider them to be on the same level when one player was drafted in the lottery, and the other, who knows where he's going to end up. The point, anyway, is that criticism coming from someone who actually did well is a lot more valuable than that of someone who was an afterthought.

    And you need more reading comprehension. I did say "
