Let me set the scene for you real quick. With 13.9 seconds left in the fourth quarter, the Los Angeles Lakers were inbounding the ball down 109-108 against the Oklahoma City Thunder. It wasn’t looking good for the Lakers, but thankfully, Nick Young would not be denied.

That was the most Nick Young play of all-time. Sixty years from now when we have the technology for GIFs on tombstones, that highlight will play on Young’s gravesite for all of eternity. It perfectly encapsulates Young’s career, as a player who will do literally anything to get the chance to chuck up a three-pointer, even picking off passes intended for teammates. But I guess that’s just what leaders do. Big time players want the ball in big time spots.

The Lakers would hold on for a 111-109 win, improving their record to 8-7 on the season. Young ended up with 17 points on a very efficient 6-12 shooting from the floor and 4-7 shooting from three-point range, and it might be time to finally retire this blunder from the internet.
