The Los Angeles Lakers are flying high after pulling off a totally unexpected victory over the Golden State Warriors. The purple and gold's win against the defending champs was the biggest upset in NBA history, and it seemingly left players as happy as they have been all year.
Former fan favorite turned break in case of emergency bench scorer Nick Young had one of his better games of the 2015-16 season in the win. Young played over 22 minutes in the victory because of the Lakers' lack of wing depth following an injury to Anthony Brown and a still gimpy Kobe Bryant, and he delivered. The man known as "Swaggy-P" scored 13 points, including providing two of the Lakers' nine made three-pointers. Not bad for a guy who thought he was going to be traded.
Young was evidently still riding high on Monday night and asked fans on Twitter to share a funny story from their childhood. This led to a... interesting... admission from Young himself:
Hahahhaahahah did that b4 https://t.co/WIWWSZgXsQ— Nick Young (@NickSwagyPYoung) March 8, 2016
Here is a screencap if that tweet does not show up in your browser:
If we were betting on Lakers to admit to this, Young would be at the top of the list, right? Growing up, Young's right arm may have been strictly for buckets, but apparently that's just because his left arm was for tattoos and fart bombs.
