The Lakers won because Nick Young was feeling 'very swagalicious'

Nick Young, as is his wont, has his own explanation for the (Kobe-less) Lakers' shocking beatdown of the Warriors:

"Rolled in with the top down" surely refers to this.

And yes, even Vlade Divac's halfcourt make for charity was a product of swagginess:

Afterwards, Young had an ... ahem ... interesting way of describing what this game was like without Kobe Bryant, who was sitting out due to rest. Via Baxter Holmes of ESPN Los Angeles:

"Some guys just played like ‘Django Unchained' -- they were free tonight," he said. 

And what would Young tell Bryant? 

"Pretty much going to have to tell Kobe to pass me the ball, pass us the ball," Young said. "Tell him to take the backseat for a little bit. He can be ‘Driving Miss Daisy' and I can be Miss Daisy and drive."

I don't think Young intended to compare Bryant to a slave owner: he has a way of saying the first thing that pops into his head. But that quote ... yeah.
