The Swaggy P era might be nearing its end in Hollywood. Nick Young, the streaky outside shooter who showed spurts of brilliance throughout his career, could be making his way out of the Los Angeles Lakers.
Young had built himself a popular image over the past few years, banking on his "swag" attitude and celebrating a three that did not even go in. He also made a run for Shaqtin' a Fool MVP, in a segment where Lakers legend Shaquille O'Neal pokes fun at players' mistakes on the court.
Rumors suggest that the Lakers are looking to get Young out of the team, either through waiving his contract or getting something in return from his former Philadelphia 76ers team. more >>

Luck is set to earn up to $140 million in six years, the largest contract ever signed by any NFL player in history. With the team placing huge trust on him, Luck must be poised to keep up his surging comeback. more >>
