Nick Young crashed a pickup game in New York

Tuesday September 9th, 2014

Lakers guard Nick Young is in New York for Fashion Week, but he needed a way to get his basketball fix, so he crashed a 3-on-3 game at a playground. 

"Lol surprise some lil hoopers while driving thru these NY streets decided to stop and join they 3 on 3 ... I had to swag on them tho," Young wrote on Instagram. 

Now that kid in the black shirt can say he assisted on a Nick Young basket. Shame on the kid in the track pants for doing his best James Harden impression on defense, though.
