The Los Angeles Lakers have not looked good at all so far this season. The biggest headline to come from the franchise was Kobe Bryant announcing his retirement at the end of this current season. Last night, the team took on the Minnesota Timberwolves and gave a valiant effort, forcing overtime but eventually losing 123-122. This puts their current record at an abysmal 3-19.
One of the talking points of the game was Nick “Swaggy P” Young‘s strong defensive play. The oddity here is that Young is more known for his offensive pursuits but stepped up in a major way for LA defensively. After the game, the 30-year-old felt that he should be added to the conversation for Defensive Player of the Year, and in the process, compared himself to Drake.
