PLAYERS: Nick Young
TEAMS: Washington Wizards

Via Cosby Sweaters:

In the second quarter of the Washington Wizards’ upset of the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday night, Nick Young may have attempted one of the worst layups in the NBA. Down by seven at the time, Wizards rookie Shelvin Mack started a fast break by finding Nick Young with the outlet pass. It looked like an easy two points for Nick Young but he inexplicably threw the ball over the backboard. Watch the video to see if for yourself, it is definitely a head scratcher.
