VIDEO: Nick Young and Marcus Landry have a three-point shooting contest at practice


One reason the Lakers signed Nick Young and Marcus Landry this season was because of their three-point shooting abilities. According to a video shot by the Lakers’ reporter, Mike Trudell, both Young and Landry are 50 percent shooters from three – they took two shots each and both made one:

All jokes aside, these two guys should not only bringing shooting to the team this season, but their youth and athleticism will be a huge plus, too. Both players should have a good year while playing in Mike D’Antoni‘s system.

The Lakers’ first pre-season game is against the Golden State Warriors this Saturday. Let’s hope both Young and Landry can continue to shoot 50 percent (or close) from range throughout the pre-season and beyond.
