It’s rather unlikely that this is true, but it sure seems like the Washington Wizards practice 360 layups. Between John Wall’s preseason dazzler and Nick Young’s spin-o-rama from last night, that’s two incredible lay-ins in the span of about two months. Not your typical basketball fare.
So, it’s either the world’s strangest basketball drill — “OK everyone, spinning layups time.” — or Nick Young’s been watching Penny Hardaway highlight tapes again. We’ll know which it is if Kirk Hinrich busts one of these out.
