Nick Young tries to expose Isaiah Thomas, Payton Pritchard scoring explosions
Isaiah Thomas and Payton Pritchard both erupted recently in Pro-Am action in Seattle and Portland which has opened eyes across the NBA. Thomas is still vying for a job in the Association, while Pritchard will be looking to build off his rookie year with the Boston Celtics. Despite dropping 81 and 92 points, respectively, Nick Young had to chime in to try and troll Isaiah Thomas and Pritchard.
I mean no disrespect but Seattle and Portland gotta have the worst pro am hoops they letting ppl score 92 81 70 50 50 come on y’all stop getting ppl from in front of the liquor store and telling them to come hoop lol

You have to admit, that’s kind of funny. To be fair, it is insane that two players can score that many points in a single game. While the caliber of the league is obviously not great, it’s still very impressive that IT and Pritchard did what they did.
Isaiah Thomas is making a serious case for returning to the NBA. He’s been balling out on a consistent basis in the Pro-Am League, clearly showing that he still has the ability to compete. The Lakers have reportedly shown an interest in him and could give LeBron James and Co. even more backcourt depth.
Pritchard meanwhile, left Summer League to go back home to Portland to play in the Pro-Am. In his first game, the former Oregon star torched his opponents with a 92-piece. Mike James, who played for the Brooklyn Nets last season, was playing on the other side.
Nick Young, you have to relax. Put some respect on Isaiah Thomas and Payton Pritchard’s names. This is not an easy feat, no matter the competition.
