Nick Young is fond of his nickname, "Swaggy P," and, until recently, he was not so interested in manipulations of that moniker. With one season on the Lakers under his belt and a long-term deal inked, Young has become comfortable enough to dictate variations of his nickname to younger players. This explains why rookies in Los Angeles have been forced to call Young "Daddy Swag," as he told NBA.com. "Well the rooks know. Y'all gotta ask them what they gotta call me all year. When you talk to them next time, ask Jordan (Clarkson) what he calls me every morning, and ask Julius (Randle) what he calls me every morning. ... It's got a little Swag in it. Sporting News

A woman agreed to drop three of her seven allegations against Los Angeles Laker guard Nick Young, who she claims had non-consensual sex with her after he bought her several drinks at a West Hollywood bar in 2011. The woman filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court in May 2013 against Young and the Crown Bar, but her lawyers filed an amended complaint a month later in which the bar was no longer a defendant. The woman, identified in her complaint as Jane Doe, accused Young in the revised lawsuit of battery, sexual battery, assault, sexual assault, false imprisonment, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligence.
