There's a Nick Young quote that is one of the 21st century's greatest:

Now here is the Los Angeles Lakers guard, in a Drew League game, after an opponent had tied up the game with his own clutch shot:

The behind-the-back dribble. Then the bucket.

Swaggy P's words in action.

Just how he likes it.

For her third birthday, Riley Curry -- daughter of NBA MVP Stephen Curry-slash-probable most famous person related to basketball -- melted hearts and servers by breaking out The Whip and the Nae Nae.

Well, Leah Still -- ESPYS Jimmy V award honoree and daughter of Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still -- was not about to stand by silently.


In the paraphrased words of Billy Zane, it's a dance-off!

Now, we're not experts so we can't possibly pick a winner. But watch this space; this challenge might escalate.

You will very likely become familiar with the name Thon Maker in a couple of years.

In fact, you might already be familiar with this high schooler's nearly unheard of mix of height and perimeter skill.

Either way, the South Sudan-born 7-footer -- who plays in Canada, is a five-star recruit in the Class of 2016 and has offers from a great many schools of note (Kentucky, Duke, Kansas, Arizona, etc.) -- recently torched a defender with a between-the-legs dribble that had him nearly on the floor.

Reminder: He is 7 feet tall, with some places listing him at 7-foot-1.

Jason Williams isn't the only former NBA star still balling out despite approaching 40.

Former Houston Rockets lefty Cuttino Mobley, looking eerily similar to Kyrie Irving's alter ego Uncle Drew in the Pepsi commercials, proved he's still got it on the hardwood playing at the famed Drew League.


While he didn't feature the ankle-breaking handles or slick passing of White Chocolate, Mobley's sweet lefty stroke was on full display.

The old man was out there schooling the young bucks and teaching them a valuable lesson: Don't judge the baller by his hair color.

A former NBA D-Leaguer-turned-social media comedian is doing incredibly accurate (and hilarious) impressions of the league's biggest stars.

From James Harden's ever-recognizable step-back jumper to his signature "stirring the pot" move, Brandon Armstrong's impression is on point.

Hopefully he'll be on the lookout for Lil B curses coming his way.

Before giving his best impersonation of The Beard, he channeled his inner Russell Westbrook.

You can check out the rest of his impressions here.
