Lakers forward Nick Young, a.k.a. Swaggy P, doesn’t seem like the kind of guy who’d be afraid of much. After all, this is a dude who doesn’t shy away from taking big shots on the court or whipping out some tongue on the kiss cam.
But apparently once he gets near salt water, all bets are off. That’s because Nick is terrified of one of the ocean’s most menacing creatures…
Don’t let that cute, playful face fool you — according to Nick, dolphins are actually stone-cold killers.
This vital nugget of information was revealed on Monday (Feb. 9) by his girlfriend Iggy Azalea, who randomly shared it with the Twittersphere.
The next day, Nick was being interviewed in the Lakers locker room before taking the court, and a savvy reporter (who must be a diligent Iggy follower) asked him to elaborate on his dolphin phobia.
Apparently, Nick and Iggy were vacationing in Cabo when they decided to take an adventurous swim with the dolphins.
“Aw man, this is a long story,” Nick said. “[We were] on vacation, dolphin was trying to kill me for some reason. He was playing with everybody else, doing what dolphins do — the 'ack ack' and all that. It was my time to ride the dolphin. For some reason, he took me all the way to the bottom. He was trying to drown me. But I seen it happening so I jumped out of the water and took off the little life vest and threw off my little water shoes and stayed outside.”
Nick said the finned culprit took everyone else around in circles, but didn’t do the same when he hopped on for a ride.
“It was my time. And when I went on, he didn’t go around. He went straight down. He was trying to kill me,” he insisted.
Asked to speculate what the dolphin had against him, Nick offered up a very convincing theory.
"I think he was trying to get at Iggy cause he was a little friendly, kissing her and stuff. He was trying to take my woman,” he said.
SMH, Flipper. Always trying to steal other dudes’ women...
