As if Los Angeles Lakers guard Nick Young needed more attention, he and girlfriend Iggy Azalea made their debut as a couple on the red carpet at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas on Sunday night. The basketball player known as “Swaggy P” and the Australian female rapper were just flashy enough to turn heads.
They’ve been dating since November of 2013 and Iggy was officially introduced as a hot NBA WAG via RantSports in February, but this was the first time the couple has presented themselves as such to the public.
Considering his Lakers didn’t even sniff the postseason this year, Young has a lot more time to kill these days while the NBA Conference Finals are going on. The couple would undoubtedly be a little more popular (and potentially polarizing) if he and/or the Lakers were making headlines for the right reasons.
Heck, the man who claims his nickname was given to him by God threw out the first pitch at a Los Angeles Dodgers game last month and embarrassed himself so badly it’s a wonder Iggy didn’t dump him via Twitter on the spot. That would have been something considering she has over 1 million followers.
So now that Swaggy P and Iggy are a thing (it still needs to be Facebook official to be actually official), will their stardom reach Odom/Humprhies/Kardashian levels? There’s only one way to find out.
