No drills, just Swaggy playing one-on-one with teenagers and elementary school kids for a few days, and tons of “if you’re open shoot it, if you’re not open still shoot it”-type encouragement. As for Young, who knows where he’s going, but a Laker fan from Dubai named Amhed Bin Sulaymen wants him to #Stay in LA really bad, and has let the entire city of Los Angeles know it.
I don’t really care where he goes, all I ask is this: Nick Young, please don’t ever stop being Swaggy P.
