Nick Young always puts on a show.

Nick Young has a knack for making everything entertaining. The Golden State Warriors shooting guard seems to always have a smile on his face, and the mood is lightened every time he’s around.

Some people just have that gift.

So when a mini dunk contest broke out at the Warriors’ practice on Thursday in Milwaukee, it came as no surprise that Young would steal the show in some way or another.

JaVale McGee started things off with a graceful reverse cradle-rocking dunk, though he just missed it. Jordan Bell went next with a powerful windmill jam. Then it was Young’s turn.

Never lacking confidence, Young tried to toss himself an alley-oop off the backboard, and go through his legs. Not only did he badly miss, but he took out a camera in the process.

Never change, Swaggy P. Never change.

It’s always fun to get a glimpse behind the scenes and see what the team is like when practicing. Sometimes we get to see snippets of how serious life as a basketball player is, and sometime we get to see videos like the one above.

You can’t beat some good fun.
