Nick Young is known primarily as a shooter. His 37.4 percent career mark from beyond the arc is a large reason why he’s been able to stay in the league while shunning the defensive side of the game almost entirely. But Young’s hair-trigger on a jump shot means we rarely get to see him take it to the rack.
Young shows off an all-around offensive repertoire with two first quarter dunks off dribble-drives in Nike’s Drew League game from this past weekend. Nick still doesn’t defend the pick-and-roll very well at the pro level, but this is the Drew League, and defense is about as important as the NBA’s All-Star game. While Young can’t defend a lick, he definitely has Swag.
How many points can Young average in Los Angeles?
