With the game on the line, Golden State Warriors' shooting guard Nick Young, also known as Swaggy P, said that he will take the last shot even if both Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry are open. Lance Fresh of Bleacher Report earlier asked Young on whether he will pass or shoot if he’s open from his favorite spot on the floor and Durant and Curry are both free, if the game is on the line. The outspoken Young replied: “Shoot that muthaf--ka, then hit both of them with: “My bad y’all, I didn't see y’all open. I thought the clock ran out.”

Last season with the Los Angeles Lakers, Young averaged 13.2 points per game and made 43 percent of his shots from the floor and 40.4 percent of his attempts from beyond the arc.

In comparison, Curry shot 46.8 percent from the floor and 41.1 percent from three-point range. Durant, for his part, made 53.7 of his attempts from the floor and 37.5 percent from beyond the arc last season.

Young drew interest in the offseason

Despite receiving more lucrative offers from other teams, Young opted to sign a one-year deal worth $5.2 million with the Warriors because of his desire to win his first NBA title. The Minnesota Timberwolves, New Orleans Pelicans, and the Oklahoma City Thunder also expressed interest in signing the 32-year-old Young. The Wolves even offered Young a two-year deal worth $4.3 million per season, but he chose to join the talent-filled Warriors where he will play a different role.

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr and Draymond Green helped the team recruit Young. Aside from Young, the Warriors also signed journeyman forward Omri Casspi to a one-year deal, Casspi previously played for the Sacramento Kings, New Orleans Pelicans, Minnesota Timberwolves, and the Sacramento Kings.

Young wants to reach playoffs

After four losing seasons with the Lakers, Young said he joined the Warriors because he wants to get to the playoffs and potentially try to win an NBA championship ring. “I don’t want to be at the bar watching it no more,” Young told Mark Medina of Mercury News. On the first day of his training camp with the Warriors, Kerr urged Young to shoot more as he focused more on passing to Durant and Curry.

“He should let it fly every time he’s open,” said Kerr. A 16th overall pick by the Washington Wizards in 2007, Young averaged 12.0 points, 2.0 rebounds, and 1.0 assists, and made 37.6 percent of his attempts from three-point range in 636 regular-season games. He played 4 ½ seasons with the Wizards, briefly with the Los Angeles Clippers and one season with the Philadelphia 76ers before he joined the Lakers.
