Last time we checked in with Nick Young, he was celebrating missed threes and having his house robbed.

In keeping with the constant party I imagine is his life, Swaggy was riding a zamboni at the Kings game on Tuesday ...

... and throwing out the first pitch at the Phillies-Dodgers game on Wednesday.

Take a couple of seconds -- maybe click here -- and try to imagine Nick Young throwing out a ceremonial baseball.

Did it go like this?

Even the Dodgers thought to clown him: "A little too much swag on this pitch."

Young made $6 million his one season as a Sixer and $1.1 million last year as a Laker. He has a player-option next year worth $1.2 million should he choose to exercise it. If not, he'll hit the market looking for more money. With any luck, he and Jordan Farmar will still be killing it all over town.

To quote USA Today's For The Win blog, from where we pulled the Vine, "May the Summer of Swaggy P never end."

I'd put Swaggy's arm up against Revere.
