Nick Young stars in hilarious celebration fail for Lakers

The LA Lakers regained a little bit of credibility last night with a hard fought win against the New York Knicks.

But Nick Young did his best to throw it all away at one point at the Staples Center as this hilarious video shows.

The Lakers guard thought he had just nailed a three pointer in the final seconds of the third quarter.

And, in true Swaggy P style, so confident was he that it would go in that he turned to accept the plaudits with his arms raised in a nonchalant celebration before the ball even reached the bucket.

Unfortunately for Young, the ball ricocheted around the rim, flirted with the idea of going in, and then bounced back out into open play.

It has been a bad couple of days for Young all round really, after the 28-year old revealed that he had over $100,000 of his stuff stolen from his LA home this week.
