Nick Young And Alex Len Got Into A Fight

Two of our old friends, ex-Wizard/human meme Nick Young and ex-Terp/Ukrainian machine Alex Len, mixed it up last night. Len leveled NY on a dunk attempt, you see, and then NY lost his damn mind.

Click through for more video and GIFs, but know that Nick is actually averaging 20.9 points/game, which is what happens when you’re a volume shooter on the Kobe-less Lakers. Alex is averaging 1.6, which is what happens when you should still be back in College Park, really.

Machado’s Latest Best Play Ever

Manny Machado made that play right there, and it’s the latest greatest of his young career. Considering he turned 21 yesterday, he was probably hungover when he did it too.

Somehow, the play was only the second most incredible thing an Oriole did in New York today, because Adam Jones hit a two-run, ninth-inning homer off of Mo Rivera to beat the Yanks 2-1. Double-plus incredible.

Back to Manny, though: This was his 10th “Web Gem” of the season, which leads MLB. It’s just another excuse to add to this ongoing Manny Machado GIF set, which may become the world’s longest web page someday.

Update: Deadspin has an awesome GIF of Manny and Brooks Robinson basically making this same play.
