LA Lakers star Nick Young makes outrageous "tight with God" claim

Nick Young is an interesting character to say the least. The Los Angeles Lakers star is different to your normal NBA player, and that's saying something.

In a world where Russell Westbrook wears ridiculous clothes to interviews, LeBron James rocks a massive pair of square-rimmed glasses and Marcin Gortat shaves his armpits, Young still manages to be the leagues most outlandish man.

Well now the small forward's claims have gone to a whole new level. Everyone knows Young by his nickname 'Swaggy P' (seriously no one calls him Nick Young anymore) and apparently the moniker is the work of divine intervention....seriously.

In the above video that was posted on Young's official Instagram account he claims that God came to him in his dream, not to impart great knowledge or wisdom, but to give him a nickname.

"Like God came in a dream, talked to me, and he gave me that name. And I was like, 'You know what, God? That is a funny name and I might need to run with it.' And ever since then, I've been calling myself 'Swaggy P.' It's a household name now."

Apparently Young and God are "Tight like that." It really beggars belief.
