Over the course of this week, Nick Young re-emerged from his sneaker closet. The week began as he gave ex-girlfriend Iggy Azalea the side-eye for “doing too much.” The jury’s still out on who got the best or last laugh. But regardless of the outcome, and by all means they don’t even date anymore, Swaggy P was going to keep good times rolling, even with the threat of punctuated needle looming over his shoulder. The images provided by Nick Young’s Instagram bear the brunt of all the explaining.
This no-shirt-wearing-son-of-a.. got a Larry O’Brien trophy drilled into his neck. He wouldn’t be the first or the last to honor the personal achievement with ink. Some even got their NBA Championship trophies tattooed as a premonition, before they’d won anything at all. Chances are the defending champs will pass on re-signing him for a 2nd year.
His first season with the Golden State Warriors saw him look anemic at times, but I kid you not, his catch-and-shoot is something to marvel at, and something an NBA team will inquire about in the coming weeks. It’s not a matter of “If” but “When” he gets signed. As of right now, adding player with his remote skill set would be appear to be the last order of business for many clubs.
Swaggy P, forever a NBA Championship like Brian Scalabrine before him.
