Swaggy P., never stop being yourself.

I expect everyone reading this post knows that the NBA trade deadline was 3 p.m. Eastern on Thursday. A lot of NBA players were watching their phones, fearing/hoping for word they were traded.

Not Nick Young.

No need to worry, Nick Young was not traded from the Lakers (trades require a demand for a player, there’s not a lot of demand for Young’s services).

I’m going to miss Swaggy P. when he’s gone from the league someday.
