Brooklyn Nets forward Thaddeus Young joined SiriusXM NBA Radio on Friday to talk about the upcoming season, and one key note, which has been a theme throughout the summer, is that he, among others in the organization, is confident in what Jarrett Jack can bring to the table as the team's starting point guard.
"Yeah, I have a lot of confidence in what (@Jarrettjack03) can do." -Thaddeus Young (@yungsmoove21) on Jack being #Nets starting point guard— SiriusXM NBA Radio (@SiriusXMNBA) August 28, 2015
Jack, who has been handed the starting point guard duties after Deron Williams was bought out and ended up in Dallas, started in 27 games for the Nets last season while Williams was injured and even when he returned from injury.
There are certainly some skeptics, in saying that the Nets have the worst starting point guard in the NBA, but within and around the team they have fait in Jack, especially coach Lionel Hollins.
Meanwhile, Young also professed his love for Brooklyn, something he's done plenty of times prior to signing his 4-year, $54 million extension.

Also presence was the new reality of youth, athleticism and what is hoped to be continuity going forward.
"We have a lot of guys who can play multiple positions, we're going to be athletic & get up and down the floor." -@yungsmoove21 on his #Nets— SiriusXM NBA Radio (@SiriusXMNBA) August 28, 2015
Young is certainly one of those athletes who can get up and down the floor and will be looked upon as a leader of this team, one which now has a young core at its base.
