Why Kobe Bryant Refused to Sign Nick Young's Sneakers

Swaggy P can't win these days.

Published April 15, 2016

It's bad enough that Nick Young is out here having to save his relationship with Iggy Azalea after teammate D'Angelo Russell taped a cheating admission video of him. Now the man got played by another Los Angeles Lakers teammate, too — Kobe Bryant.

Just let this Yahoo Sports reporter tell it.

Aw man! Swaggy P just can't win out here for anything. Perhaps he should start over with a new team next year.

Hey, Kobe has openly joked and taken public shots at Nick before, but he didn't give Young those autographed kicks Wednesday night after playing his last game. Nick — hold this L. He should have known that Kobe is a Nike guy through and through.

We wonder if Kobe told him "Mamba Out" when he requested the autograph.

But Swaggy P's persistence did pay off. He got Kobe's autograph one last time...just not on sneakers.

#MambaDay 60 tho 👀
