Lakers forward Nick Young began his career in Washington. He played for the Wizards from 2007 to 2012, during which time the Washington media delighted in documenting his gaffes on and off the court. 

Fast forward to 2017 and Young has made a name for himself as Swaggy P, minor pop culture phenomenon and the source of instant offense for the Los Angeles Lakers.

Whom he's dating has become a thing. 

But back in Washington, he's still the guy who tapes himself and Javale McGee eating spoonfuls of cinnamon. 

Perhaps for that reason, he really doesn't like the Wizards. In fact, back in 2015, he was quoted as saying, "I hate the Wizards. But I like some of the guys over there, I just hate the Wizards." 

It seems the feeling extends to the Washington media cameras, as well. With the Lakers in town to play the Wizards Thursday night, cameras approached Young as he was giving an interview at shootaround.

He literally ran away from them. 

It's unclear where he was going, as he ran up the steps and out onto the concourse. Maybe he's just really shy... suddenly.
