Nick Young with the worst shot attempt ever

Nick Young is known for his questionable shot selection, but this might be the worst attempt he's ever taken.

Douglas Jones-US PRESSWIRE

Nick Young is known for his, well, questionable shot selection. Ever since he entered the NBA in 2007, he has yet to meet a shot he didn't like. But this? This, folks, takes the cake.

With the first quarter between the New York Knicks and Philadelphia 76ers coming to a close, the 76ers got a fast-break after stripping Carmelo Anthony. A bad pass ahead eventually leads to Young getting stuck in the corner, and ... this happens.


Yeah, that's a shot attempt. Never mind that teammate Thaddeus Young is wide open underneath the basket. Never mind that there are 10 seconds left in the quarter. Nope, Young had to put up the shot, or else.

He missed, by the way. Here's a gif of the entire sequence.
