Swaggy P reveals Ben Wallace, Rip Hamilton gave him his NBA “Oh, Shit!” moment

Ben Wallace & Nick Young

When asked what his “Oh, shit!” moment was, Nick revealed it involved battling Detroit Pistons, particularly Ben Wallace and Rip Hamilton.

Nick Young aka Swaggy P, last played in the NBA in 2018, but with his colorful personality, fans are still missing him and are interested to know about his stories and the stuff he’s doing. Fortunately, he featured in Draymond Green’s recent podcast and relived some NBA moments on the show.

Swaggy P’s Oh Shit moment 

Nick Young played in the NBA for ten seasons. No matter how you remember him, the guy balled. What fans remember most would be the Shaqtin A Fool moments which were gold, and some even became memes. Also, who could forget the locker room snitching incident in L.A. Lakers that led to D’Angelo Russell falling out with his teammates and getting traded?

“I think when we played against Detroit. Oh man, I had to go to Richard Hamilton and he was coming off 12 screens and Ben Wallace was screaming. I was like I got to do this every night.”

Swaggy P is not known for his defensive effort, and chasing Rip when he was at his peak gave anyone fits. Hamilton was one of the guards whose strength is midrange jumpers and moving well without the ball. It’s similar to how Steph Curry breaks away from multiple defenders in Golden State basketball. 

What Nick Young is up to now

Young was an NBA champ in 2018, but his antics would be the ones most remembered. Playing ten years in the professional league speaks to what he can bring on the court; on the other hand, only JR Smith probably could rival him when it comes to Shaqtin moments. 

In April 2021, it was reported Swaggy P signed with BIG3's Enemies. It could pave the way back to the NBA. Remember that Joe Johnson earned a return to the league with his superb performances playing in BIG3. We might see Swaggy P in the NBA sooner than later if he shows he still has what it takes rather than give his coaches What the fuck happened moments.
