So Curry injured himself again in his first game back from an injured ankle. You and I both know what that means: Nick Young as the first option on offense! He scored a bunch in the fourth quarter of this one sans Curry, and if Curry isn’t back for the next game (RIP), Young should continue to be the guy on the Warriors who takes and makes all the shots. He’s getting older now (a goofball like him seems to exist in a perpetual state of youth like a cinnamon-challenge-doing Peter Pan, but he’s actually 32), but he can still give you points in a hurry if you let him. And if his stupid shots are happening to go in that day. Otherwise, he’ll go 3-of-11 and you’ll have to limit the damage by taking him out.
Who else on the depleted Warriors can shoulder the load of being the number one guy? Certainly not Andre Iguodala or Draymond Green. Probably not Patrick McCaw or Quinn Cook. It has to be Nick Young. I’m not sure if I’m happy, anxious, or angry about that, but that’s how it is.
