Nick Young brings new meaning to 'crunch time'

By Cindy Boren

The Benz was in the shop and Nick Young of the Wizards was dealing with an unfamiliar auto, icy streets and an NBC Washington crew doing a feature on him. He jumped in, fired up the rental and ... backed right into the Channel 4 car, putting a hole in its bumper.

Too funny,too real and the reaction is even better. Who says these guys are all a-holes? Nick you have a fan in me,I think Channel 4's guy is at fault for not moving,kidding. But I love the ya'll keep that in there,really shows what a coddled jack-a$$ the young millionaire is doesn't it? I'm sure someone will have something negative to say about this but I think this definitely "keeps it real",more people should react to minor accidents like this,besides why do you think they call them accidents and not "on purposes"?I work in the collision repair industry (yes that's what it is now,with 100's of thousands in equipment,high tech training and state of the art systems,we are not your Dad's "bodyshop" anymore)and in most areas the insurance companies will make sure not to refer the same shop to both parties involved in an accident to avoid possible friction if the two parties involved see each other again,now in South Carolina they do not do this,and I can tell you on more than one occasion it has become anything but comfortable when people involved show up and the same time,in fact on two occaisions it has been an event for law enforcement. Word for the wise,it's a friggin car get over it!!!!

When is someone at the post going to bring up the fact that Grunfeld didst tender Young before the season??

Could prove to be a costly mistake.

You may also get a discount if you take a defensive driving course. If there is a young driver on the policy who is a good student, has taken a drivers education course or is at a college out of the area without a car, you may also qualify for a lower rate. search online for "Clearance Auto Insurance" they are the best for student drivers

Just wondering why with the money Nick Young has that he didn't have someone come out and salt down the driveway or sidewalk yet?

@PublicEnemy1: Because he's a 20-something year old from LA. Sure he's been in DC for several years now but since when can you count of 20-something year olds to do the most logical?

BTW, if he pays someone to do every little thing I doubt that his money will last long. He could have done the salting himself.
