Nick Young rocks a pair of Gilbert Arenas' shoes for Lakers game vs. Warriors

It's early in the season, but the Lakers are playing arguably their most important game of the season on Tuesday night as they try to keep the Warriors from setting a record for the best start to an NBA season. Big games call for big shoes, and Nick Young opted for a very special pair for the game, as he posted on Instagram. A photo posted by Nick Young (@swaggyp1) on Nov 24, 2015 at 5:54pm PST If those shoes look familiar to some of you, it's becausethey're from Gilbert Arenas' outstanding 2007 shoe line. Nick Young had to go above and beyond to get the shoes, because they...

Nick Young is wearing amazing gold shoes he took from Gilbert Arenas

Alright Nick, this is unquestionably swaggy. Nick Young and Gilbert Arenas are like two peas in a pod, friends from their days back with the Washington Wizards. That's why it's not all that surprising to hear that the Lakers' guard was hanging out with Arenas on his off day. What is shocking, however, are these incredible golden shoes he picked out from Agent Zero's closet that he'll be wearing against the Warriors. I'd advise putting on some sunglasses before taking a look at these shiny nuggets of golden goodness,via Bill Oram of the OC Register: Nick Young borrowed his game shoes...

Byron Scott on if the Lakers will play Nick Young at point guard: 'Hell no.'

At least one decision the coach and fans can agree on. Lou Williams has struggled for the Lakers while miscast as the team's backup point guard. After a career season with the Toronto Raptors in which he averaged 15.5 points on 40.4% shooting, Williams' averages have plummeted to 12.3 points on 32.8% shooting in his debut with the purple and gold. Lakers head coach Byron Scott voiced faith last Thursday that Williams would bounce back, but on Sunday told team reporters that he was considering making a change. So one hero asked the important question on all of our minds: will Nick Young be...

Nick Young says Jordan Clarkson is good at videogames

The Lakers may not be playing very well, but their team chemistry is still great. Judging off of their social media presence, most members of the Los Angeles Lakers are having some pretty quiet Saturday nights before they host the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday. D'Angelo Russell went to go watch his fellow rookie Anthony Brown score 14 points for the Los Angeles D-Fenders in their win over the Reno Bighorns, and it looks like Nick Young and Jordan Clarkson had a quiet night in playing video-games against each other: Yo @JClark5on bring the skills from the court to @Rainbow6game, always...

Lakers Highlights: Nick Young is on fire in the second quarter

Swaggy-P can't miss. Nick Young has quietly had a really effective season for the Los Angeles Lakers, and started out hot against the Toronto Raptors, knocking down his first two three pointers: Young is so hot he doesn't even need to stay on his feet to hit threes. Good stuff from the bench scorer.

Lakers Highlights: Russell lobs it up to Clarkson for glimpse of Lakers' future

Young guys throwing lobs. The athleticism and transition play of the young Los Angeles Lakers was supposed to be one of the highlights of the season for fans, and Jordan Clarkson and D'Angelo Russell showed off a bit of that here. Way to save what was a somewhat off target pass from Russell by Clarkson, who showcased his impressive speed on this play as well.

For a night, Lakers' Nick Young seemed like his old 'Swaggy' self

Perhaps the P in "Swaggy P" meant perplexing. Or perfunctory, as in the low minutes Nick Young was logging this season (18.2 a game before Tuesday). The Lakers forward had been less lofty than loquacious, more erased than effusive as his minutes shrunk and his profile sagged other than the 41%...

Nick Young is the king of first quarter buzzer beaters

Someone on the team is ready to play. The Los Angeles Lakers got off to a demoralizing start against the Sacramento Kings, but after a nice pump fake and side slither move, Nick Young has hit a first quarter buzzer beater for the second consecutive game, cutting the Kings' lead to 40-24. Young of course did the same thing in the Lakers' season opener against the Swaggy-P(retty clutch in the first quarter) Young is off to a great start this season, one of the few bright spots so far. If the Lakers get a bounce back year from the bench scorer, that could help them deal with the so far...

Nick Young hits ridiculous buzzer beater, pretends to be an airplane

TOO. MUCH. SWAG. Nick Young is known for never meeting a shot he doesn't like. So it makes sense that with the clock winding down the ball found the player on the court who it is a safe bet to say is not worried about his shooting percentage. Throw up that prayer Nick: That went in?? Opening night is truly the most magical time of the year.

Lakers Highlights: Kobe Bryant drains a circus shot, officially making it a new Lakers season

Mama there goes that man. Kobe Bryant is the master of the magnificent. Those high degree of difficulty shots that defy logic, then still sail through the net, are part of the legacy he'll leave behind. A Los Angeles Lakers season doesn't begin until he drains an impossible jumper like this: Mamba out.

Julius Randle dunks all over the Timberwolves off nice pass from Hibbert

So glad the NBA, and Julius, are back. When the Los Angeles Lakers acquired Roy Hibbert in an offseason trade with the Indiana Pacers, the hope was that he would cover for sophomore Julius Randle's mistakes defensively. That has gone about as well as the team could have hoped, but it is the offensive end where the pairing has pleasantly surprised fans of the Lakers, such as on this sequence where Hibbert threw a sweet interior pass to Randle for an emphatic dunk: Roy and Randle are both nice passers, and it is a safe bet we can look forward to more highlights like this this season.
