Nick Young says God gave him the nickname 'Swaggy P'

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

Yes, that's Los Angeles Lakers' shooting star Nick Young in an Instagram video telling us that God apparently gave him the nickname "Swaggy P" by coming to him in a dream. We're going to need a minute to really soak this all in.

I feel like it's important to really digest this entire phenomena going on in this video. Let's first write out the words he's saying here and I'd like to remind you the caption/description on his Instagram post of this video is "Me and God tight like that." Here's the quote:

"Like God came in a dream, talked to me, and he gave me that name. And I was like, 'You know what, God? That is a funny name and I might need to run with it.' And ever since then, I've been calling myself 'Swaggy P.' It's a household name now."

It's like his nickname is some type of divine swaggervention. Just to reiterate so we're all clear, Nick Young said his nickname "Swaggy P" came from a dream in which God came to him and gave him the nickname. Young told him it was a funny name and he might need to run with it. Now it's a household name and it all happened because he and God are "tight like that."

How do we give him Kevin Durant's MVP trophy?
