Who Can We Thank For Nick Young's 43? Gilbert Arenas, Of Course ...

When I looked down at the box score for the Wizards game last night my first thought was, "Wow, 43 for young Nick (one of my best nicknames thank you) on 7-10 three point shooting. What an incredible performance!" Gilbert Arenas had a little bit of a different reaction apparently.

Arenas took credit for Nick Young's 43-point masterpiece. Young: "I looked down at my phone and it said, 'You learned from the master.'"less than a minute ago via HootSuite

What do you think it was that Gil taught Nick that helped him go 7-10 from deep last night?

"A little tidbit from me to you Nick, if you're going to be shooting a shot from behind the arc, try your best to make sure it goes in. You should be writing this down somewhere."

So let's all give the master his due. Thanks Gil, the Wizards couldn't have done it without you last night.
