HoopsHype Nick Young rumors
Nick Young returns and the Lakers are 2-0 after starting the season 1-9. Two games is not a huge sample size, but we’re about one or two more wins away from everybody deciding at once to refer to the opposite of Bill Simmons’ Ewing Theory as the Swaggy P Corollary. Young and Jordan Hill got interviewed in the locker room after last night’s victory in Houston, and there were some highlights: Young’s open: “It’s all about my swag. That’s a part of my repertoire. I’m talking about how I just walk off. I leave a presence when I walk off. I’m like Michael Jackson, Prince, all them other guys.” The Big Lead
Iggy was hoopin' around with her BF Nick Young on Friday when she decided to test out her dunk skills. She went up. She threw down. Ball sorta love-tapped her in the face. So, of course, she immediately went to Twitter and injected faux drama ... "Somehow while trying to dunk a damn ball i smashed myself in the face. i won't quit my day job anytime soon. lol." TMZ.com
Nick Young was in great spirits after completing his first full practice with the Lakers on Saturday. The jokes were flying as he said he felt comfortable putting up shots and going through the motions for the first time since injuring his right thumb in October. If all goes to plan, Young is expected to make his season debut on Tuesday when the Lakers face the Atlanta Hawks. Young was quick to share the news with his typical flair. “The Defensive Player of the Year is here today and he’ll be here Tuesday,” Young said. Los Angeles Daily News
Scott also said that Lakers forward Nick Young will have his right thumb examined on Monday in hopes. He has stayed sidelined for the past six weeks because of a right thumb injury that required surgery, but he has participated in conditioning drills and has dribbled and shot with his left hand. In recent weeks, Young has worn what Scott called a “soft cast.” "My understanding is he can start dribbling and passing. They didn’t say anything about shooting, but I don’t think that’s going to go away with him,” Scott said, laughing. “I think he’ll be able to pick up on that pretty soon.” Los Angeles Daily News
Seems Nick Young and Iggy Azalea are one step closer to the alter ... because they just bought a house together -- and Nick says they've started talking about marriage. Nick just spilled his guts about his relationship with the rapper to DuJour Magazine ... saying, "Me and Iggy just bought a house. We’ve been getting really close lately. I’ve never been with somebody like this." TMZ.com
