I’ve been saying it, Nick Young has been saying it and his teammates have been saying it for the past month: Nick Young is a more mature player and will have a bounce back season. With that said, he wouldn’t be the Swaggy P we all know and love if he didn’t occasionally do something to end up on Shaqtin’ a Fool. And last night against the Blazers he did one of those things: Young fumbles the ball, dribbles around for a bit, does a spin move and then attempts a contested fadeaway 3 pointer. No surprise he missed – not just the shot but everything.
Nick finished the game with 12 points on 4 of 13 shooting (3 of 10 from 3) in 18 minutes. He’s also only failed to score in double figures in 1 of the Lakers’ 7 preseason games.
