VIDEO: Nick Young Spins For Another 360 Layup Against Denver Nuggets


↵

It takes an incredible amount of athleticism and body control for someone to twirl his entire body in the air and still finish with a little kiss off the glass. It's a move so rare that the Loch Ness Monster wishes he could see it. And yet, Nick Young of the Washington Wizards has now done it twice in one season.

Earlier this year, Young pulled off the move in a game against the Los Angeles Lakers. Now, he did it again, this time against Carmelo Anthony and the Denver Nuggets. It came at a time where an energy spark was desperately needed, with the Wizards trailing by double digits in the first quarter in front of a dead Verizon Center crowd.

Alas, it hasn't helped, as the Wizards still trail by double digits in the second quarter, but it was still an awesome move. Now, imagine him doing that with cornrows instead of the afro.
