Los Angeles native Nick Young may no longer be a member of the Lakers after departing for the Golden State Warriors in free agency this summer, but as one of Julius Randle’s longest tenured teammates, it’s no surprise he was at the latter’s wedding on Thursday.
If you were wondering if Young was going to be serious about the moment, congratulations on reading your first story about the man known as Swaggy P:

In case you couldn’t turn on the sound at work, that was Nick Young mock crying while lamenting Randle being “gone” before imploring his former teammate not to cry at the altar.
As much as Young’s shooting helped the Lakers last season, it may be his social media posts and the levity he brings to the team that will be missed most now that he’s in Golden State. So long, Swaggy (and congratulations on the nuptials, Julius).
