Tuesday was a popular day for local athletes to be sued for assaulting a woman.
Shady McCoy may or may not have partied too hard on a bus, but it was Nick Young who was being taken to court over an alleged date rape from 2011.
Now, a report from TMZ is calling the accuser's claims into question and using words like "crazy" and "unbelievable" in its headline.
She's filed a civil lawsuit, but now we're learning shortly after the alleged incident, she went to LAPD cops who dismissed her claim because her story didn't make sense. What's more ... law enforcement says at the time she went to cops, she was already talking about a lawsuit, and that made them even more suspicious.
We're told the woman subsequently made financial demands on Nick -- to either pay up or face a lawsuit.
If that's indeed the case, let's hope this is the last we hear of Swaggy being sued.
Dealing with injuries in their crease, the Los Angeles Kings called the Flyers to check in on the availability of bad goalie Steve Mason, according to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman.
Kings starter and otherwise really good goalie Jonathan Quick is out up to three months with a groin injury, while backup Jeff Zatkoff is currently on injured reserve with a groin injury too.
Before eventually brining in former Predators and Coyotes goaltender Anders Lindbach, Los Angeles called around the league to see if any teams might be able to help them find a replacement for Quick. Mason was one of the potential candidates, Friedman said, but Mason's $4.1 million cap hit couldn't fit into their cap situation. Plus, the Flyers don't have any cap flexibility, either.
Mason is 4-2 with a 2.77 goals-against average and .901 save percentage in six games this season.
Get this guy season tickets! (Just kidding, we don't endorse this kind of behavior and almost don't find it funny at all)
A man who if you were kind of drunk could almost look like Larry Bird's second cousin was ejected from the Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday night for showing a bit of negative emotion directed at Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook.
Kids, if you're reading at home, stop....

The fan was later removed from his seat and probably told to act like a decent human.
