Nick Young plays the game of basketball much like a drunk fraternity brother in an intramural game. Winning or losing isn’t necessarily important to Swaggy P. He just wants to ball out, and fire up absurdly inefficient shots every chance he gets. His style of play upsets traditionalist fans of the sport, but fuck those bitter fossils. He’s pulling off the ultimate hustle.
Hell, right now he’s the only relatively entertaining aspect of a truly terrible Los Angles Lakers squad. The only reason you’d watch a Lakers game is to see Swaggy P launch one up from half court, behind his head, in the middle of the 1st quarter, with 15 second stills left on the shot clock. Sure, he’s bounced around from one terrible team to another, but he’s been in the league for almost a decade, gets buckets, an NBA paycheck, and goes home to Iggy Azalea (she looks better from behind).
Young also gets to go home to his shoe collection of over 500+ pairs, and the separate building he has for them. Sure having a shoe house is one thing, but if you thought Swaggy P would stop there, you don’t know Swaggy P.
Young employs two people to watch over his 500-plus pairs of kicks.
Absolutely love this move. He has not one, but two dudes on payroll that essentially protect his Jordan’s like the Ark of the Covenant. For what it’s worth, he did get robbed this past march and lost his prized “Red October” kicks, so he’s obviously just taking the necessary precautions.
No doubt in my mind these guys are something like former military or mercenaries and will shoot on sight if you try breaking in..
