While the Lakers were playing their sixth preseason game of the year, shooting guard Nick Young couldn’t help but have some fun of his own. Young dazzled the crowd with this amazing half court shot he hit while standing backward.
If there’s any player who has confidence in his ability to shoot, it’s Young. Through his first six seasons in the league Young has gained a reputation of being a shooter, and providing instance offense. He even went out of his way to give himself his own nickname Swaggy P.
The Lakers were in Shanghai, China to play their sixth preseason game on the year. The trip included a game in Beijing three nights earlier. While the Lakers did lose the game 115-89, Laker fans can only hope Young has a successful year of shooting the ball for the purple and gold as he is expected to play a significant role for the team.
