To ease his mind surrounding the uncertainty he will face on the free agent market, Lakers forward Nick Young has adopted a few habits this offseason that fulfills the “Swaggy P” persona.
OK, so he maintains he has worked out consistently in the gym to keep both his game and conditioning sharp. But Young has also relaxed, going on a recent vacation to Cabo, Mexico and planning a trip this weekend to London. As he posted on his Instagram account last month, Young also attended a 90’s themed party for his 29th birthday.
Here, you can see Young wearing cutoff shorts, Jordan Farmar wearing clothing promoting MTV, Robert Sacre dressing normally and Steve Nash wearing a ridiculous suit featuring cutup pants, a half-knotted tie and a jacket without a dress shirt.
“I was shocked what Steve Nash wore,” Young said with a chuckle. “I was impressed. That’s why I like hanging out with Nash. He’s real cool.”
So how did this idea come up?
“It was Jordan’s house party; I just crashed it,” Young said. “I turned his party into my party.”
