Late in the fourth quarter of the Washington Wizards' 117-107 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday, Nick Young got tangled up with Drew Gooden, and shenanigans ensued.

Gooden and Young's arms were locked after a loose ball, and Young took exception to Gooden swinging him around.

I don't know what's more amusing, the fact that Young manages to move Drew Gooden about eight inches during the scuffle, or that Jordan Hill and Marcin Gortat wind up in some sort of bear hug as part of the melee.

Once the officials reviewed the incidentGooden received a flagrant-2 foul and was ejected; Hill received a technical and was tossed. Young also got a technical, but stayed in the game.
