Nick Young Had a Ball at Tuesday Night’s Los Angeles Kings Game

He wore a custom jersey and rode the Zamboni, and his hair was perfect.

Yes, Nick Young had the time of his life at Tuesday night’s L.A. Kings game.

Unlike other NBA players left out of the playoff picture, the Lakers shooting guard decided to spend a night of postseason basketball indulging in a bit of ice hockey. 

Young headed back home to the Staples Center for Game 3 of the Kings’ playoff series against the San Jose Sharks. Nina Mandell of For The Win spotted pictures and media of Swaggy P’s night at the rink. Yes, they’re about as perfect and predictably goofy as you’d imagine.

Naturally, Young wore a custom “Swaggy P” Kings jersey with his No. 0.

He and his entourage also invaded the tunnels, presumably to see the sorcery that occurs when the Staples Center reverts to hockey mode. 

The crowning moment of the evening came when the self-proclaimed best shooting guard in the NBA hopped on the Zamboni.

They even let him take a spin around the ice.

What’s next on the docket for Swaggy P? How will he spend the rest of his offseason? 

If Tuesday night is any indication, Young will probably hit the horse track with a custom-stitched jockey kit and follow that up by flying a purple and gold hang glider over downtown Los Angeles.

The weirdest part is that no one would be surprised if either of those things happened.
