Nick Young says on camera 'everybody needs to do cocaine' — seriously

Basketball star Nick Young isn't known for his throughout comments, but this one may have just topped them all.

Another day, another thoughtless Nick Young comment. 

 

Swaggy P was approached by a TMZ cameraman on Tuesday night while leaving  1 OAK, a nightclub in Los Angeles. He was asked about his feelings about Canada legalizing marijuana. 

 

Young, who didn't take a minute to digest the question, responded with his own thoughts on another drug: cocaine. 

Everybody needs to do cocaine.

"I want people to pass cocaine," the Warriors guard said on camera. "Everybody needs to do cocaine."

 

Of course, the comment didn't go over well with fans with some taking to Twitter to express their thoughts. 

 

"Nick Young done won a ring and lost his fucking mind," wrote one user. Another said, "Nick Young is the J.R. Smith of Golden State."

 

The 33-year-old, who agreed to a one-year, $5.2 million contract with the Warriors last offseason, is scheduled to hold a basketball skills camp for girls and boys in Alameda on June 30.

 

No word if he is going to be resigned.
