LA Lakers guard, Nick Young is not short of confidence. You don't get the nickname 'Swaggy P' if you're a shrinking violet. However this time he has gone too far.

Responding to a fan's question on twitter recently, the Lakers man claimed that he was the best shooting guard in the NBA.

A fan asked Young: "when are you gonna be a top 5 NBA player?" to which the playere responded: "I think I'm top SG." 

Young has deputised well in spells for the injured Kobe Bryant this season, averaging 17.9 points and 1.5 assists per game.

However, with the Lakers close to cementing the sixth worst record in the league, Young's claims seem pretty lofty.

Bryant, who usually fulfils the shooting guard role for the Lakers has missed most of this season through injury and the team have completely fallen off without his star power.

Meanwhile other shooting guards such as Dwyane Wade, James Harden and Bradley Beal have all found their way into the playoffs.

Lakers fans will be pleased that Young is showing extreme levels of confidence but will expect to see his performances actually hit that level next season.
