LOS ANGELES — One month ago, we started the #STAYSWAG billboard campaign in an effort to keep Nick “Swaggy P” Young in a Los Angeles Lakers uniform. While it started out as just a fun campaign to pass the time as we wait for the NBA Draft and free agency, the support has been overwhelming.
With thousands of fans donating and supporting through social media, our campaign has become a reality.
Beginning the week of June 16, the #STAYSWAG billboard will go up in Los Angeles, California. The billboard will be located on 6th and Central and will be available through the entire month:
With Young likely opting-out of his current contract to become a free agent this summer, we all know he wants to return long-term and help the Lakers become a championship contender again.
He has embraced the fans and city of Los Angeles and knows that he’ll have to make sacrifices to remain here. With that in mind, the fans have come together to return the love and hopefully keep Swaggy P here.
Last but not least, we want to thank the fans for making this possible from the entire staff at Lakers Nation. Nick Young has noticed and clearly appreciates everything we’re doing to keep him in a Lakers uniform:
@LakersNation y’all sure do no how to make me feel love
