The Los Angeles Lakers have not lost a game this year.
To clarify, they’re 2-0 in 2016.
Nick Young thinks his shoutout on Kanye West’s new Nike diss track “Facts” is a crucial reason for L.A.’s recent success, per Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News (Warning: Link contains NSFW language):
Nick Young credits Lakers going 2-0 partly to Kanye West shouting him out on "Facts." Young: "That's our anthem before the game."— Mark Medina (@MarkG_Medina) January 4, 2016
Here's the line where Yeezy name-drops Swaggy (h/t Washington Post):
On the field I’m over reckless, on my Odell Beckham/
2020, I’ma run the whole election …
Tell Adidas that we need a million in production/
I done told y’all, all I needed was the infrastructure/
Now we hottest in the streets, it ain’t no discussion/
James Harden, Swaggy P runnin’ up the budget
When the song first dropped, Julius Randle and Jordan Clarkson braced themselves for the Swag storm that was coming their way:
