‘Swaggy’ is hardly how we’d describe Nick Young’s past couple weeks. Not only is he falling out of favor with Los Angeles Lakers coach Byron Scott, but his superstar girlfriend recently let his embarrassing phobia of adorable, fun-loving sea creatures slip, too. Highlights like this, though, will surely help get him back on track.
Say what you will about Swaggy P’s game and persona, but few in the league can cook like this. His combination of shot-making, handles, and body control is rare in the NBA, and frequently makes players like poor Steve Blake look silly.
Alas, step-backs alone won’t help the Lakers win. Young’s overall struggles continued in Los Angeles’ 102-86 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday night – he made just 4-of-12 shots for nine points while barely contributing elsewhere.
