Lakers season preview: Shooting guards

Lakers season preview: Shooting guards

The Black Mamba and Swaggy P will lead the Lakers at shooting guard this season. The Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard position is thing heading into the 2014-2015 season, but arguably houses their two best players in Kobe Bryant and Nick Young. The duo will be expected to carry the Lakers scoring, which is right up their alley. Here's what we had to say about the pair in our season preview. "Rewind to last April: Swaggy P was THE reason people were still watching the Lakers by the end of the season. He had a career year that addressed his haters and then some. Swaggy P averaged a career...

Throwback Thursday: Nick Young's 360 layup

Remember that one time Nick Young hit a 360 layup? Yep. { width: 100%; } img { max-width: 100%; } In the spirit of Nick Young being our featured Los Angeles Lakers player in the Silver Screen & Roll season preview today, we'll go ahead and keep with him for our #ThrowbackThursday post of the week. This was a tough one to choose -- his accidental-assist to Pau Gasol for a made three was close to taking this slot -- but Swaggy P hitting the 360 layup around Marc Gasol takes the cake today. Here it is, in all of it's spinning glory: Maybe it was the fact he tried this...

Lakers season preview: Nick Young's encore performance

Lakers season preview: Nick Young's encore performance

After serving a critical role as a stopgap on last year’s undermanned squad, what part will Nick Young play in the future of the Lakers? Last year’s signing of Nick Young was met with shoulder shrugging from Los Angeles Lakers fans. It was a nice story of a hometown kid making good and coming back to play for the franchise he’d idolized as he was growing up, but that seemed about it. At the veteran’s minimum, the consensus was that he was a good financial deal with upside, but it was unclear how much. Although his role had quite a bit of a positional overlap with Kobe, what did the...

Lakers season preview: Nick Young profile

Lakers season preview: Nick Young profile

What should Lakers fans expect from L.A.'s favorite son? Name: Nick Young Season: 8th season (2nd with Lakers) Role: Sixth man, fan favorite, microwave scorer. The Good: The aforementioned scoring ability and seemingly unlimited levels of swagger. He gives 100% for his beloved hometown team and can be a ray of sunshine even on the darkest days. It's hard not to love Nick Young, who plays basketball with unbridled enthusiasm. The Bad: Not for lack of effort, but he often gets beaten or lost on defense (a theme with Lakers players the last few years). His scoring ability can...

Happy anniversary, Swiggy P! { width: 100%; } img { max-width: 100%; } Nick Young continues a strong summer of social media, this time making sure to wait until just after midnight PT last night to post an Instagram photo celebrating his one year anniversary with Iggy Azalea.

Target? Why didn't I think of that?! Basketball's "royal" couple continues to...

Nick Young's son dominates Pop-a-Shot game

Swaggy P's protege is a natural at getting buckets. { width: 100%; } img { max-width: 100%; } Nick Young is back to his regularly scheduled life after an eventful trip to New York during Fashion Week, and back to fatherhood duties. This includes taking Swaggy Jr. to get up some shots at a Pop-a-Shot game, as seen on Young's Instagram feed. His son was getting buckets, drilling not one, not two, not three, not four ... but six shots in a row before the video cuts out. Some scouting video on the future NBA superstar: "That's what I'm talking about son. That's what I'm talking...

Nick Young's NBA 2K15 player model is much improved

Nick Young is looking much more like his swaggy self in NBA 2K15. { width: 100%; } img { max-width: 100%; } NBA 2K15 information continues to leak as the game's much-anticipated release is less than a month away, and the latest Los Angeles Lakers tidbit comes in the form of Nick Young's player model. The Swaggy one didn't look particularly accurate in 2K14, lacking tattoos and sporting a hair style that left much to be desired. 2K Sports overhauled his model and he's looking better than ever before, via Operation Sports' Steve Noah: The differences are significant from last...

We've been covering Nick Young's experiences in New York during Fashion Week here at Silver Screen & Roll and SB Nation, ranging from his run-in with Jimmy Goldstein, an impromptu game of pick-up basketball, and even his jet ride home with his other half, Iggy Azalea. Second-hand aggregation no more, Swaggy P personally blogged about what he was up to in New York. A small taste of what's in store over at Papermag: Is that a Zebra or just James Goldstein? Only Swaggy. The full blog post...

Nick Young surprises a few young hoopers playing basketball in New York

Nick Young has been busy during Fashion Week in New York. Now he's popping in at random parks to play hoops. Nick Young seems to be enjoying New York Fashion Week to the fullest. He's already being singled out by GQ as one of the best-dressed celebrities, he's enjoying some quality time with the one and only Jimmy Goldstein, and now he's popping in at random parks to play pick-up ball with unknowing youngsters.

Nick Young and James Goldstein hung out at at New York Fashion Week

So much swag in a single photo. Nick Young had quite a productive time at New York Fashion Week this year. GQ listed him as one of the best dressed celebrities during the festivities, which is enough to call it a solid week. He topped it off in true Swaggy P fashion, however, by linking up with NBA "icon" Jimmy Goldstein. The swag is nearly too strong to stare at here. Be careful, folks: What were they talking about? Perhaps Jimmy was giving Nick a few fashion pointers. All things considered, Nick is looking rather tame even though he appears to have electrical tape on his tie-dye long...
