MarShon Brooks dunks past Nick Young in the ultimate metaphor (VIDEO)

Coming out of the draft, one of the knocks on MarShon Brooks was that he was a gunner, not a particularly solid team player, and though he got “baby Kobe” comparisons was more routinely derided as another version of then-Wizards guard and current 76er Nick Young, known for shamelessly shooting his way through games and shooting teams out of them. I was a little more bullish on Brooks’s passing ability, calling him instead the more refined “gentleman’s Nick Young,” and I stand by that comparison.

There was nothing gentlemanly about this though, as Nick Young could do nothing but stand by and watch as the self he could have been tore past him for a two-handed slam.
