Nick Young assured himself a place on the nightly highlight rundown by hammering home a one-handed reverse on Portland Trail Blazers big man Joel Freeland.

You can see in the clip that Young craftily snuck along the baseline as Portland's defense converged on Steve Blake in the right corner. Freeland's rotation was a half-step too late. The result?

Smash.

The dunk was actually part of a two-slam special Young put together in quick succession. Here's the first one from moments before his rude spike on Freeland's head.

Young seemed especially hyped up during his mini dunk exhibition. I wonder what the explanation was for his boundless energy?

Well, that explains it.

Some players are motivated by the desire to stretch their athletic gifts to the furthest possible extent. Others are consumed with winning at all costs. And a select few draw strength from their desire to impress Rihanna.

To each his own.
