You gotta love Nick Young. First, Swaggy P said he’s a better three-point shooter than the legendary Larry Bird. He gave a hilarious postgame interview with Jordan Hill. He even has advice to give you the girl of your dreams.
Now he thinks he can play 20 years in the NBA and get a ton of points. Per Mark Medina of the L.A. Daily News:
Nick Young on Kobe: "I think he got some potential. On my 20th year, I’ll probably have 46,000 points or something like that."

Nick Young was referring to Kobe Bryant’s triple-double in the Lakers’ victory over Toronto on Sunday night.
Swaggy P is in his 8th season and has scored 5,952 points. So that means he still has 40,000+ points to go in 12 years. Keep in mind that Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is at 38,387 points (the best NBA career scoring mark of all-time) and Jabbar played 20 seasons. You have quite a lot of work to do, Nick Young.
You gotta love Swaggy P.
