Swaggy P Throws Out Absolutely Awful First Pitch at Dodger Stadium (Video)
The Lakers had a pretty terrible season. Kobe played just six games and the team finished in 14th place in the Western Conference with a record of 27-55.
Chalk it up to the curse of the Zen Master, I guess.
Of course, all the misery was great news for Nick Young, aka Swaggy P, who had the best year of his career. The 28-year-old small forward/shooting guard led the team in scoring coming off the bench and, with Kobe out of the picture, he wooed fans and became a genuine Los Angeles sports celebrity. Now he’s dating a gorgeous Australian model/rapper named Iggy Azalea, he’s a free agent about to get a very lucrative contract, and, with his season over, he’s living it up in Los Angels.
What does “living it up” mean? Well, in addition to drunken nights out on the town—and, reportedly, some pretty fantastic sex—it also means driving the zamboni at the Kings game and throwing out the first pitch at Dodger Stadium.
Unofurtnately, while the former activity went down without a hitch, the latter was pretty ugly. Turns out Swaggy P may be good at 360º reverse layups, but he’s pretty terrible at throwing a baseball. His attempt last night sailed about 20 feet over home plate, straight to the backstop:
Yep, that was bad. Better stick to drinking and dating hot chicks, Mr. P.
