VIDEO: Nick Young Takes Lakers For A Spin

Nick Young has flashes of brilliance. Against the Lakers, in front of his hometown crowd, Young gave Wizards and Lakers fans alike something to talk about.

In the first quarter, Young drove to the lane and found only Lamar Odom standing between him and the basket. Odom has about three inches on Young, but that didn't matter to the latter. Young spun around Odom, who could do nothing but stand there with his hands raised, perhaps signaling Young for takeoff. 

Not to be outdone, Odom would come down the court on the ensuing position and take off from the free throw line for a slam dunk. But we'll give the nod to Young for style points. Perhaps we're biased, but we appreciate streetball skills on an NBA court.
