One of the greatest things to ever happen to the basketball internet was the 2007 NBA Draft, because that’s the exact day that Gilbert Arenas and Nick Young became teammates. And while things may not have ended well in Washington, we can all agree that the three-and-a-half years those two spent together were some of the greatest blog years in league history.
And that’s what makes this high-speed reunion so special. It’s like a throwback to the good old days, when Gilbert Arenas’ knees worked and Nick Young wasn’t totally the go-to punchline for bad shot selection. Not to mention, it’s a nice callback to that famous Steve Nash video. Apparently you can always find a Los Angeles Lakers guard driving around L.A. somewhere. Good to know.
Oh, and also — Nick Young and Gilbert Arenas were both videotaping each other while driving on a freeway. Still Wizards at heart, I guess.
