Lakers' Nick Young Is Trying to Make 2,000 3-Point Shots in a Week

The Lakers' sixth man averaged seven 3-pointers per game last season.

In addition to his outgoing personality, Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard Nick Young is well known for hoisting up 3-pointers. During the 2016-17 season, Swaggy P played 25 minutes per game and averaged seven shots from downtown.

Besides shooting a fair number of 3-pointers, the 31-year-old made an impressive 40 percent of them. And even though the Lakers' season ended in April, Young has been continuing to jack up long-distance shots during practice. 

Young recently shared a picture on Twitter of some of the work he has been doing during the offseason. His goal is to make 2,000 3-point shots in one week. 

Young is off to a good start, making 500 of 578 shot attempts on Monday. That's an 87-percent clip from deep, and though nobody was guarding him, it's still outstanding shooting.

Maybe next season, Young will be able to celebrate a shot before it goes through the basket.
