Former Wizards guard Nick Young is known for saying and tweeting some of the most outrageous things in the NBA, but few quotes from Swaggy P are better than the one where he said he wouldn't get tattoos on his right arm because it was "strictly for buckets."
Unfortunately, it appears that Young has officially sacrificed the sanctity of his shooting arm, as multiple Instagram posts show that Young's bucket-getting limb is actually now inked up. Sorry, we should've told you to take a seat first before you read that last sentence.
Take a look for yourself, and try to hold back tears as you come to grips with the fact that the 30-year-old has ended the era where his right arm was around simply to unleash majestic step-back 30 footers:

As you can see, Young's right forearm boasts a tattoo of legendary rapper Tupac Shakur's face. If you're going to violate the "no tats on the right arm" rule, doing so by putting Tupac's face on it is certainly the way to do it.
Young's choice brings up many questions, such as, "Are arms that are strictly for buckets officially a thing of the past?" and "Will those who have preserved their limbs in order to score a lot of points follow in Young's footsteps?" But one thing is for sure: If Young's shooting percentage plummets in 2015/16, we'll know why.
