As a shoot-first, think-second gunner off the Warriors’ bench, Nick Young is already the closest thing the NBA has to a human line of cocaine. But when Swaggy P calls for the legalization of coke on a TMZ camera while leaving the club on a Tuesday night, he wants y’all to know he’s just kidding.
It was otherwise a shitty, forgettable NBA Finals series, but at least it produced this fascinating outcome: Nick Young (!) joins fellow Cinnamon Challenge hero and former Wizards knucklehead JaVale McGee (!!) as an NBA champion. The sheer improbability of Nick Young finding a role on a championship team was not lost…
The late-model Washington Wizards are broadly competent, secretly mediocre, spotty, and more boring than they are not. They could be nutshelled as an equal and opposite reaction to their counterparts of a decade ago. Those Wiz teams, which weren’t better but sure were stranger, boasted a bigger collection of…
Nick Young did not come close to making this shot. Not remotely. But he played it off as if he did, and sometimes that’s all you need. Announcer Bob Fitzgerald fell for it, hard.
Nick Young’s shooting form is just a bit outside the realm of what most would dub conventional, to say nothing of the times and places that he chooses to take his shots. He has a high release point, though he attains that altitude by jerking his body over to the left and casting the ball out relatively slowly. It…
The Golden State Warriors were, by a mile, the best possible team for a goofy open-three shooter like Nick Young. But probably not even in Young’s wildest dreams did he know that playing for the Dubs would be so easy and fun so quickly.
Recent Golden State signee Nick Young met with the press Friday night. Among other things, the issue of Golden State’s constant-movement, pass-first offense came up. Here’s Swaggy P:
The most whimsical and doomed NBA teams in recent memory were those Washington Wizards squads between 2008 and 2012 that featured Gilbert Arenas pooping in teammates’s shoes, JaVale McGee fucking up all over the court, and Nick Young pulling up and laying bricks about 20 times a game. Thanks to the good graces of the…
A typical fake-ass NBA scuffle broke out in the third quarter of the Bucks-Lakers game as Nick Young and Greg Monroe earned ejections for their roles in justice-dispensation.
Nick Young, whose greatest feat to date was convincing anyone to call him “Swaggy P,” is currently shooting like a discount Steph. Yesterday against the Grizzlies he set a Lakers record with 36 threes over his last 8 games, going 56 percent from the arc in that span. (For a slightly less arbitrary, franchise-specific…
Last night, Nick Young came full circle.
Former NBA player Gilbert Arenas, who at this point will do anything for attention, showed up at Lakers guard Nick Young’s house last night and documented his visit on Snapchat.
Here is a story of love, hacking, misspellings, “Becky”, and tattoos, in seven tweets:
Last week, celebrity gossip website Fameolous posted a video that it said showed Los Angeles Laker Nick Young admitting to cheating on his fiancée, pop star Iggy Azalea. It further claimed that the video was recorded by Young’s teammate, D’Angelo Russell.
Sports are cool but I was not trained in the art of figuring out if one enormous man hit another enormous man in the right or wrong way. I do, however, have years of experience dissecting the wack-ass behavior of celebrities.
Here’s a tweet that Lakers guard Nick Young, who has had some problems recently, just sent and then deleted almost immediately:
D’Angelo Russell and Nick Young spoke to the media before tonight’s game against the Heat, and addressed a number of issues surrounding the video Russell shot of Young talking about hooking up with a girl at a club, that later leaked to a celebrity gossip website.
Lakers players are angry at teammate D’Angelo Russell, have no trust in him, and are refusing to sit with him at meals, according to a report from Baxter Holmes and Marc Stein:
