When you’re known as ‘Swaggy P’, this kind of comes with the territory.
Nick Young’s season got off to a festive start as the Lakers guard brought the ball upcourt at the end of the first quarter in the team’s season opener against the Timberwolves. Young stutter-stepped around Kevin Martin and leaned into a two-legged jumper from around midcourt.
Of course, he found nothing but net.
Los Angeles led Minnesota 31–22 after one quarter, but wound up losing 112–111. Swag on.
