Nick Young proved last season that he is one of the streakiest scorers in the NBA. He exploded for the Lakers last season, averaging a career high 18 points.
This season, Young is expected to play a pivotal role for a Lakers team looking to surprise some people this year. He will likely be the sixth man for the team, and be one of the leading scorers again.
Many players in the NBA have tattoos, and Young is among them. But as he said on his twitter, there is one place he won’t get tattoos:
No tats on the right arm Strictly for buckets

The attitude of Nick Young is what has endeared him to Lakers fans, and things like this show exactly why. Young is confident and works hard, but he knows how to have fun as well.
Young knows what he does well in the NBA and he is not going to do anything to mess up the arm that he scores with. As weird as it sounds, it’s no different than baseball players who have all of their superstitions before they come up to hit.
Whatever Young is doing, he should keep doing it because the Lakers are going to need all of his points this season.
