Nick Young jokingly blamed Jordan Clarkson for his 3-point contest loss

New, comment

Swaggy is never not quotable.

NBA: All Star Saturday Night Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Lakers are officially done with 2017 NBA All-Star Weekend in New Orleans after Nick Young lost in the first round on the 3-point contest.

Even in defeat, there is never a dull moment with the man known as Swaggy-P, and he offered a few reasons for his loss.

Despite taking an L, Young says he may not be done with the event just yet:

Whether Young will be in a Lakers uniform next season is unknown right now, but whether or not the team moves him at the trade deadline or he leaves in free agency, an especially if he remains in a Lakers uniform, the Los Angeles native would certainly be a welcome fixture when the contest comes to his hometown next year.

Either way, he probably won’t be taking advice on it from Jordan Clarkson again.
