Nick Young was given the entire fourth quarter to pretty much do what he wanted. The Warriors were up by forty, and he had only taken two shots up to that point, so he made the most of the scoreboard disparity and shot the ball ten times in the fourth.
Normally one thinks of the Warriors as a ball-moving team that focuses on taking good shots, but that really only applies to the starters and the first few players off the bench. Nick Young has never cared about moving the ball or taking good shots, which might be why he’s being used so little by Coach Kerr, but the results can be somewhat entertaining when vintage Nick Young is unleashed. Nick Young is a little bit young (“LOL”) to be turned into a victory cigar who barely comes off the bench, but he knew what he was signing up for when he went to the Warriors.
A ring. That’s what he signed up for. A championship ring. “NBA Champion Nick Young” doesn’t sound right to my ears but I’ll take it.
