ShareBullets: Nick Young’s Game Winner & JaVale McGee’s Workout With Tyreke Evans
A D.C. pic and some links …
I probably should have included the above pic of the Monumental Sports banner on the Verizon Center in my post about a similar banner on another building. I guess I was distracted by the dueling plastic drum drummers. You can spot the other one, right?
Otherwise, not much happened Wizards-wise today. Kirk Hinrich did return to Sioux City for a golf benefit, said it was “a little weird” when he had his presser and put on a Wizards jersey. Glad he hit that free-throw.
With a hotly contested 142-all summer league contest on the line, Nick Young’s killer instinct took over as he hit the buzzer-beating game-winner … over former teammate Shaun Livingston no less. He then smiled a lot in the post-game interview. The video, via Ball Is Life, is embedded below.
It recently surfaced on Twitter that JaVale McGee was working out with Tyreke Evans and trainer Rob McClanaghan in Cali. Here’s some video of that, via Dime Magazine.
