In an earlier interview, Jeremy Lin said that Nick Young had to earn the “Swaggy P” nickname. Well, Nick Young thought it was funny and added to the banter:
Told Nick Young about Jeremy Lin saying he doesn't deserve Swaggy nickname. Young laughed and said those two are filming Rush Hour sequel

It’s not the most original joke; Lord knows I’ve seen so many Jeremy Lin/Rush Hour comments. But Nick Young is a legitimate hilarious character and if anyone could fill the role in a comedic buddy cop movie, it would be Swaggy P.
Maybe Jeremy Lin can have Nick Young guest in one of his YouTube videos. And have Steve Nash make a cameo appearance.
