WATCH: Nick Young hits shot after shot in Instagram workout video

When I think of Nick Young, one of the first words that comes to mind is “buckets”.

Swaggy P is known for his ability to fill it up – Kobe Bryant even alluded to this during Kobe Up Close last week – and thanks to a video Young posted to Instagram, we get a sneak peak at one of his shooting workouts. Young hits shot after shot in the video, which was posted along with the caption “Just listing [sic] to the net that’s all it’s about lol”.

Young has been putting in work his summer and is due for a breakout season:

Just play like you want that long term contract and hit shots like that in a game!!    Kobe didn't have to say what he said about you having that "Kobe gene" and potential and getting that kind of compliment from him is no little thing and that ESPN rating seems to have lit a fire under him and Wes as well as Hill.


GOOD!    Play with that chip every night.  Good consistency and effort is what I want to see! 
Don't talk about it be about it.  So I'm happy to see these vids surfacing of them in the gym working hard since then.  Carry that over into camp and beyond.

So I HOPE he's working hard in the gym like it says he has been.  This is the year to show it.  Prove Kobe right!

This.


I remember going to pre games here in denver, watching chris anderson hit jumpers all day from the corner 3 point line. In game is entirely different feeling, more pressure. These guys are pros, of course they hit all day wide open in an empty gym

Pretty much this.  Guys in the NBA hit wide open shots like butter.  Watch a pre game and you will see the most avg shooter knock down like 5-6 in a row like nothing.

Jennings can shoot, but it's a matter of shot selection, but honestly, a team like the BUCKS were built for him to fail, he has to do way to much for his offensively challenged teammates and unlike his idol Iverson, he isn't a pure scorer.

 

Speaking of Jennings. How he is in the mold of AI, Nick Young is a baby Kobe in a lot of ways.

 

 

I think the way we should utilize him is off the bench though.

 

 

He's a decent 3 point shooter, but to relegate him to spot up shooter would not be the best way to play in my opinion.

 

The problem is Wes Johnson HAS to hit corner 3s to be a viable starter.

 

In any event it will be interesting to see what happens with our young guys.

 

 

 

I think as fans, we need to hope that Farmar can make Blake replacable, and perhaps the Lakers can flip that 4 million into  a a big, or perhaps Meeks' contract, but what I really , really hope is a few teams REALLY wanna get Wiggins and our expirings look great to them

All good points, but the main takeaway is that he is working hard this summer.  That's not always been the case with this guy, I suspect.  Say what you will about Blake Griffin being soft etc, he has always impressed me with his summer work ethic.  He comes back in the Fall with something new every year.  Karl Malone was still working on his footwork and back to the basket game in his late 30's in the summer. And the list goes on and on.  Talent alone can usually only take you so far.

To touch on Blake Griffin.  If that dude ever manages to get that mid range game down the league is in trouble.

No they aren't, he'll just be a great player. Nothing to put fear into the league over. Karl malone, never did anything and Blake would not be any better than him with a mid-range game.

The fact is... He is putting in work. At least he ain't half a**ing it. He is playing ball and practicing. Staying in game shape and putting in reps. Practice or not.
