Last March, then-Washington Wizard Nick Young shocked the world when he executed the worst layup attempt in NBA (and quite possibly just basketball) history against the Lakers. If you haven’t seen it, please revisit it. He’s wide open, gets about half a foot off the ground and just lobbed it straight over the backboard.
