Nick Young is one of the NBA’s resident goof-balls. He is beloved because of his shooting prowess and for the fact that he plays the game with a lot of joy.
Two seasons ago, the USC product was signed by his hometown Los Angeles Lakers and buoyed the undermanned roster after Kobe Bryant went out for the season with injuries.
He was widely celebrated in the area for putting forth effort and maintaining a positive attitude despite the lost season. Young was also engaged to rapper Iggy Azalea and things looked up for the shooting guard after he inked an extension with the club worth just over $21 million.
Last year was not kind to the streaky shooter as he was displaced from his starting spot by the return of the Black Mamba. Also, conflicts with rookie DeAngelo Russell led to the end of his relationship with Azalea.
The love affair with his hometown looks like it is coming to an end and now he finds himself on the trading block. But, if you think that’s going to bring the easy-going swingman down, then you obviously aren’t familiar with his work.
Swaggy P is also no stranger to enjoying the finer things that come along with being a professional athlete. He has an impressive sneaker collection, designer clothes and a love of old-school cars.
It was no surprise to find him shopping for new furniture in Los Angeles with the rapper, The Game. They were both in their pajamas in the store and took a second to post a photo on the L.A. native’s Instagram account.
The Lakers guard was in a Versace bathrobe and slippers in the store and while that is pretty extravagant what else are you supposed to be lounging on a couch that you’re going to buy in?
Hopefully he can get back in the organisation’s good graces next year and he won’t have to move that couch somewhere else.
