Nick Young of the Los Angeles Lakers is no stranger to being in highlights for all the wrong reasons. On Wednesday, Young may have become a candidate to be on NBA on TNT’s Shaqtin’ A Fool with something he did at the free throw line against the Brooklyn Nets.
While at the charity stripe, Young busted out the pump fake while shooting a free throw, via Bleacher Report:

Perhaps Young’s biggest gaff during an NBA game came a couple of years ago. Young, who was in the running for Shaqtin’ A Fool MVP, shot a three, turned around, and celebrated thinking it was going down. It didn’t.
Although Young made highlight reels for all the wrong reasons over the last few years, the Lakers guard has resurrected his career this season. Young is having arguably his best season yet in the NBA this year while quickly becoming one of the Lakers’ best players on both ends of the floor.
