Video: Kemba Walker Channels Inner Nick Young With Premature Celebration

No matter how good Nick Young plays this season, and he has been one of the Los Angeles Lakers’ most consistent players, he will never live down the moment in 2014 when he celebrated a 3-pointer too early. The good news for Young is that he may have been topped by Charlotte Hornets point guard Kemba Walker.

In the Hornets’ Thursday night’s game against the Miami Heat, Walker was so sure that his three-pointer had gone in that he turned around and began shimmying. Unfortunately for him, the ball would bounce out and the jokes immediately began.

The comparison to Young’s shot was an easy one to make as Young was blasted for turning around before the ball dropped. Likewise, Walker will endure plenty of his own criticisms, thought it is all in fun.
Luckily for Walker his Hornets still got the victory, but this moment will still go down in infamy.

Now the question simply becomes which one was worse, Walker or Young? You be the judge.
