Former NBA player Nick Young says when he was a rookie on the Washington Wizards, he and teammate Andray Blatche were sleeping with the same team cheerleader. Shortly afterward the cheerleader was fired. In the wake of the Ime Udoka situation with the Boston Celtics, we are due to have stories like this told, and it’s all nauseating.
Nick Young says a Wizards cheerleader got fired after sleeping with him and Andray Blatche

According to Young when either the league or the franchise found out the cheerleader or assistant — Young isn’t sure — was fired. He said when the day that it was learned she was fired, people were blaming him and Blatche.
Young is no stranger to wild tales from his NBA playing days. We all remember the D’Angelo Russell incident when they were both members of the Los Angeles Lakers.
In 2016, Russell recorded a conversation he and Young were having in the team locker room. In the conversation where Young doesn’t know he’s being recorded, Russell asks him about being with multiple women. At the time Young was engaged to Australian rapper Iggy Azalea.
Somehow the video got leaked and wound up on one of the celebrity gossip sites. It ended Young and Azalae’s relationship and labeled Russell as a snitch and someone guys didn’t want to be around for the early part of his career.
Young, aka Swaggy P, has taken up boxing following his hoops career. If you can call what he engages in boxing.
The former Lakers baller made his boxing debut earlier this month against TikTok star Malcolm Minikon, who was a late replacement for rapper Blueface, who dropped out of the fight due to not receiving a boxing license. The fight took place as part of the the Social Gloves 2 event.
Seems like Young needs to continue training. In the fourth round he was hit with a jab or elbow or something by Minikon, which sent Young falling through the ropes and ultimately ended the fight.

Young took to Twitter to respond to fans claiming he got knocked out.

Following the fight, Young alleged it was a headbutt from Minikon that pushed him through the ropes.
“I felt good, I hit him a lot, I felt I came and did what I had to do. He hit me with a cheap shot and that’s what you’ve got to do when you’re losing. I don’t want him getting a headbutt at the end and thinking he won off a headbutt, I don’t know how you can think he won,” Young said.
Of course, Minikon denied using an illegal move and instead talked about the limited time he had to prep for the fight.
“I had two days to prepare, I definitely would have given a better show if I had more time to prepare but it’s whatever,” he said.
Young was drafted 16th overall in the 2007 NBA draft out of the University of Southern California. He played for the Wizards, Clippers, 76ers, Lakers, Warriors and Nuggets over the course of his ten-year career.
