VIDEO: Nick Young pump fakes, draws contact, scores and then celebrates with Kobe Bryant


He was doing impersonations of him on Friday night and was celebrating with him on Sunday. Well, at least in the first half he was.

The Lakers were blown-out (and that’s an understatement) by the Denver Nuggets in the second half of Sunday night’s game, though the first half was much happier when Nick Young and Kobe Bryant shared a short celebration, despite Bryant still being sidelined by a fractured left knee.

Firstly, Young threw down a big dunk, then followed it up minutes later with this pump fake and score which Kobe seemed to appreciate.
