You wouldn't normally turn to Nick Young for answers to the universe's biggest questions.

Nonetheless, it seems Swaggy P is prepared to not only validate the existence of a higher power, but also to explain that said higher power is in the nicknaming business.

And here we all were, thinking Young had come up with the moniker all on his own. For shame.

This actually makes sense if you think about it; Young shoots all the time, and every one of his attempts are basically prayers.

I guess the man upstairs saw fit to answer. 

Where can I comment?
