Iggy Azalea looked some sexy on the red carpet at the MTV Video Music Awards last night. But it didn’t hurt one bit that her date, boyfriend and NBA player Nick Young looked as handsome as can be. As Iggy Azalea keeps getting more and more famous, I think it is time we get to know her boo a little better. Especially since GQ called them, “the coolest, freakiest young couple in the NBA.” Nick Young is already well known to any basketball fan but to the casual sports enthusiast, his name may not ring an immediate shot clock buzzer. (Does the shot clock buzz? I have a feeling it doesn’t). So her are some things you need to know about Iggy’s Bae:
He plays shooting guard and small forward for the Los Angeles Lakers.
He has also played for the Washington Wizards, the Los Angeles Clippers and the Philadelphia 76ers.
His NBA nickname is Swaggy P.
He has a beautiful smile:
He is Kendrick Lamar’s cousin.
He starred in a documentary called Second Chance Season.
He and Iggy have been dating since around September 2013.
He once said she interesting things to a TMZ camera about Iggy:
Okay let’s just forget that point…
He has been called, “everything that’s right and wrong in today’s NBA.”
He has a good sense of style and name checked Givenchy on one of his first dates with Iggy.
He has a really freaking cute kid. I mean….
He started the Nick Young Foundation with hopes of putting an end to gang violence and offering free psychiatric services to those who have been affected by it. His brother was killed in gang violence after being mistaken for someone else.
He has run to Iggy’s defence often when Nicki Minaj and other rappers have thrown shade at his girl.
Drake called them the poor man’s Jay and B when he hosted the ESPY Awards. I actually think that is a huge compliment.
And I have to say, I think that GQ quote about them being the freakiest couple is very true. The greatest love can bloom when freaky finds freaky.Tweet
