Swaggy P in LA: Why Nick Young Says Lakers Love Underdog Role

Nick Young is returning to his hometown of Los Angeles, where he'll join a Lakers team in flux after the loss of All-Star center Dwight Howard. For the first time in recent memory, the team might be in the NBA lottery.

Do you think Nick is right and the Lakers should embrace the underdog role? Let us know in the comments below.
