    Great to see Young get his NBA contract!

    He had another great night on Friday scoring 8 points and adding 12 rebounds.

    Heard it on TV20 last night at 6. Awesome for such a great guy!

    As a side, I see nothing has changed here. The sports announcer finished his bit, then the female anchor said "Great news about Patric going to the Pelicans. Now he can stay in Florida." Sports guy looked at her and said "whaaaat?? They play in New Orleans". Totally confused face by her. "They're not in Florida?" I was laughing so hard my side hurt.

    :D

    Actually, that old and horribly incorrect saying: "Nice Guys Finish Last," has always been utterly untrue, and was created by Non-Nice Guys in an attempt to rationalize bad behavior. Governments also support this idea because it helps foster destructive attitudes among military and control (policing) forces.

    In fact, of course, all but the most psychopathic support and recognize "nice people" because humans, being the utterly social creatures that we are, recognize that helpful and supportive behavior helps all of us.


    Regarding Patric Young specifically: it is really, really great to see such a terrific example of humanity gain a bit of the success he so deserves.

    Glad to see TV 20 is still at the top of the game after all these years.

    I rememeber in 86 when they came to a football practice before a playoff game and 90 percent of the questions they asked were about the weather and the shorts we were wearing...good times

    Heard it's an unguaranteed contract so he can get cut at any time. $500k the 1st year and $800k the 2nd.

    Seems like most guys in his position start on non guaranteed contracts. If he sticks until Christmas time, it'll become guaranteed and a nice present.
