When the Los Angeles Clippers traded for Nick Young at the deadline, they filled a gaping hole left in the absence of Chauncey Billups' torn Achilles tendon. Whether the Clippers knew it or not, by making this acquisition they also destroyed a comedy duo the likes of which the NBA had never seen. During the NBA lockout much information regarding what well-known players were up to was made readily accessible to the fans. From Kevin Durant playing quarterback in a flag football championship, to Mavericks Shawn Marion and Tyson Chandler teaming up with Kevin Love in a skit about their confusion regarding what a lockout actually is. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aeku6IxtnOA It didn't matter what it was, without a guarantee of the league's swift return the fans lapped it up. Probably the most anticipated NBA lockout activity however, was Ford Productions' teased 'Nick and JaVale show'. The short lived Youtube series gave us multiple classic moments. There was freestyling at a Korean barbeque house, and McGee consequently harassing a sheepish nearby patron about how he could make country music just as well as rap music (which wouldn't surprise me as JaVale's rapping was truly terrible). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sM-j56uuh2o Then there was Nick Young responding to the question of whether he thought the Wizards could compete for a championship. Amongst a quip Young answered yes, though there was subsequent laughter. And of course there was the cinnamon challenge, a spectacle way overdone on Youtube. Nonetheless, Nick and JaVale (or Swaggy P and Pierre as they dubbed themselves) managed to breathe new comedic life into the task, which probably had to do with JaVale puffing cinnamon out of his nose like a dragon. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GAVgmlmsTAI Nick Young has been through his fair share of tragic events, events which Young himself is open about. There is even a documentary titled 'Second Chance Season', detailing the effect his family struggles had on both his schooling and his rise to the NBA. Despite all this Young is a fan favourite, be it for his streaky shooting, high-flying dunks or quirky sense of humour. Yes he can be extremely trigger happy, but when you provide quality production off the bench sometimes you are expected to be. Jamal Crawford and Jason Terry didn't become sixth men of the year by not taking shots, now did they? Young is averaging just shy of twelve points a game since coming to Los Angeles, and has stepped into a leadership role off the bench that anyone who is the best player in a second unit must adhere to. And yes, he has certainly contributed to the Clippers currently being on a six game win streak. With Young locked in a battle to potentially be the Clippers fourth, or if Caron Butler continues to struggle, even third scoring option, it seems as if Nick Young and the Clippers are a match made in basketball heaven. It's a win win situation with the Clippers gaining another player more than capable of dropping twenty points, and Young finally getting a chance to longer be seen as a joke now that he is part of an outfit which simply must be considered as a contender. However, even if Nick Young and the Clippers go on to win five titles, the only thing that could justify this trade is an off season reunion for Swaggy P and his long lost pal Pierre.
