When Kobe Bryant got his heartfelt farewell message from Michael Jordan in Charlotte, Swaggy P was asked about it. He gave out the best metaphor and related it to getting a shoutout from Kanye West.
Nick Young said Michael Jordan's message to Kobe on the jumbotron was great: "It's like Kanye getting on the Tron & shoutin' me out."— Serena Winters (@SerenaWinters) December 29, 2015
Getting a shoutout from Kanye sounds like an amazing experience that can probably only match the excitement of a Michael Jordan shoutout. Alas, the Swaggy P dream remained just that.
BUT HE GOT HIS WISH! Kanye West dropped 'FACTS,' just a few hours before the new year, and Nick Young couldn't be happier.

Young is justifiably ecstatic, but his Lakers teammates aren't as thrilled. They're still fairly happy for him, but they already know that he won't shut up about it.
