It’s an interesting weekend for Young, who must decide whether to opt in or out of his contract by the end of the day Monday. Young is widely expected to opt out and seek a bigger deal, and the Nets are prepared to offer him one after his post trade-deadline stint with the team helped catapult them to the playoffs.

But for now, let’s just marvel at the light-up Guy Fawkes mask. Happy birthday (and Father’s Day), Thaddeus Young!
