Wizards fans remember Nick Young for taking ill-advised shots, but most of those didn't work out. On Tuesday night, the now-Lakers guard took a shot that probably had his coach cringing... until it went in.
Young essentially stole a pass that was thrown to another teammate and chucked up a three against the Oklahoma City Thunder. It went in with just five seconds left and sent the Lakers home the winners of a thrilling game.

Young was asked afterwards if his game-winner reminded him of Kobe Bryant and other former Lakers. His response was classic:

Never change, Swaggy P.
