Nick Young's Son Plays 1st Organized Basketball Game, Promptly Gets Buckets
Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Being Nick Young's child seems like a cushy gig.

You get a cool haircut. Your dad only gets mad at marine mammals. You're not named "Chosen," so your chance at happiness isn't immediately snuffed from the get-go.

The only real expectation for Nick Jr. is to uphold the Swag family oath to get buckets at all costs, and Swaggy P's child has followed through on that much so far.

Young posted videos over the weekend of Nick Jr. playing in his first organized basketball game Saturday. He's easily recognizable, as he's the only kid out there with big hair whose only concern is putting the ball into the basket.

Young notes the similarity in their styles. Both place bucket-getting over all else.

"Everybody on the court knows it's going to go in," Young said. "He's going to do like his daddy and shoot."

And then there was a Gatorade break, because orange slices are for busters.

Proud dad is proud. He's also running up the budget.


Dan is on Twitter. His kid is gonna do like his daddy and blog. Or become an astronaut. That would be much cooler.
