From bold and unapologetic fashion statements, to pull-up transition threes, confidence has always been an inherent trait of Los Angeles LakersNick Young.

That certainty was put to the test the previous two seasons as Young struggled under the direction of former coach Byron Scott, whose tough-love approach and outdated offense never meshed with the free-flowing, get-buckets persona of “Swaggy P.” Along with being held out the last 17 games of last season, he also went through a very tabloid-like breakup, which bred further criticism and negative press that had the veteran guard questioning his future with both the Lakers and in the league.

Young would use the negativity surrounding his name to fuel a rededication to his craft that would also help spawn his own streetwear brand, Most Hated. With Luke Walton taking over the helm, Young was offered a clean slate and a coach that not only empowered him to be himself, but also empowered his belief in him by naming him a starter. Swaggy P was back and even with the subsequent losses that come with developing youth, the Lakers have been more entertaining because of it.

With the season coming to a close, we caught up with Swaggy, where he gave a tour of his San Fernando Valley home, gave us a look at some of his most prized sneakers and apparel pieces from Fear of God plus OFF-WHITE, to Saint Laurent and Supreme, talked the inspiration, vision and direction of Most Hated, and the resurgence in his play this season.
