Nick Young Does Not Pass The Ball Very Much

Nick Young has done a lot of good things this year, but passing remains one thing he just can't or won't do. How bad is it? According to a study by Neil Paine of Basketball Reference, Young passes the ball on just 27.4 percent of his touches, the lowest in the league among guards who play at least 30 minutes a game.


By comparison's sake, as Tom Ziller notes, if Kobe Bryant passed that infrequently, he would shoot 32 shots a game in 34 minutes a game. That's Kobe Bryant we're talking about. He's not exactly know for passing a lot either.
