“I Went From Getting Snitched On To Putting A Ring On”

Nick Young, also known by his God-given nickname “Swaggy P,” is hella excited about winning his first NBA championship, and he isn’t letting ANYONE steal his joy, you hear me?

Even though he only scored a total of 5 points throughout the entire 4-game series, Young is probably the most excited Golden State Warrior. See the below video of him strutting down the floor at the end of Game 4 as the clock ran out for proof:

After the game, he called himself the “Swag Champ,” while cradling a massive bottle of Moët champagne.

He even talked about how he’ll be in a museum one day.

And he also gave a Warriors beat reporter a champagne bath, because why not?

But, perhaps, the best moment of Swaggy P’s post-game victory press tour came when he said the following quote: “I’ve came along way, haven’t I? I went from getting snitched on, to putting a ring on”—an obvious reference to that one time his L.A. Lakers teammate D’Angelo Russell broke the guy code and exposed him cheating on his then-girlfriend Iggy Azalea.

And, of course, Twitter seems to be enjoying every moment of Swaggy P’s celebration:

Your faves may not have a ring, but guess what? SWAGGY P DOES!

Chris Paul Out for Game 7 in Houston Against Golden State Warriors Due to Hamstring Injury

The Houston Rockets will not have one of their starting players tonight when they take on the Golden State Warriors in Game 7 of the Western Conference NBA Finals. Chris Paul will be out for the game as he is currently suffering from a hamstring injury.

Coach Mike D’Antoni broke the news in a press conference Monday evening (May 28) just an hour-and-a-half before the game in Houston, saying “there was just now way” Paul would be able to play tonight.

Paul also missed the Rockets’ 86-115 loss to the Warriors in Game 6 Saturday in Oakland. Paul was average 21.1 points and 5.8 assists per game in the playoffs this year.

CP3 was one of the Rockets’ star players in their past two wins, average 23.5 points in those games and was a key player in helping them comeback in the fourth quarter of Game 4, which they won by three points: 95-92.

Unless James Harden can pull something big off by himself, without Chris Paul, Houston will most likely lose to Golden State, meaning that the 2018 Finals will probably be GSW vs. the Cleveland Cavaliers—their fourth matchup in a row.
