First home game was played last night, so the fans got to see some playing time for all 4 rookies and our 2 new acquisitions going into the season (first regular season home game on November 3rd). Thad Young looked alright in his first game, nothing spectacular of note.. but as one of many young swingmen on the team.. who knows if we'll see anything noteworthy this season. Jason Smith looked like an absolute beast. We did play a lousy Net team that didn't dress 4 of their starters, but Smith was blocking shots left and right and putting up some decent numbers. He's got to watch the fouls though, he was just hacking on some occasions and that's just not going to cut it against veterans. Byars and Hill looked like your average 2nd round players, nothing really worth speaking about last night from either guy. Before the game, while preparing the graphics packages. I wanted to make a big to-do about Lou Williams and how he was averaging 25 ppg in the summer league. Marc didn't think it was really worthy material, seeing as the main storyline last night was the rookies, Booth and Evans. I did manage to get Lou in as the poll question though.. anyway, if you watched the game. Lou had 33 points in the 2nd half after sparce play and 0 points in the 1st half. He looked really good, he was on the verge of being player of the game (unfortunately the Nets pulled it out and Nachbar got it). I think we'll be seeing alot more Lou Williams this season, and I wouldn't be surprised to see him starting alot sooner than alot of people anticipated. I'm excited about this team right now. They may not have the people necessary to make a good run, but at least there's a lot of hustle and energy on the court and those things always give you a chance to win.
