With Drake's sneaker future still undecided, the latest indication of where the "Scorpion" rapper might wind up is coming from an unlikely source: Golden State's Swaggy P.
Grailed's Lawrence Schlossman recently caught up with Nick Young before the playoffs and picked his brain on everything from on-court and off-court style to Big Baller Brand and Starbury. Of all the sneaker-related gems, the biggest reveal comes when Young is pressed to spill the beans on the rumors of Drake's jump to the Three Stripes.
"I've seen him with the Yeezys on. That’s a big win. Nike’s been killing it, but now we've got Kanye, we’re about to have Drake," Young said, seemingly leaving little room for interpretation.
When it comes to his penchant for playing in Yeezys, Young admits there's some degree of peer pressure in the locker room. "My teammates was kinda daring me. They didn't believe I was going to do it," he says of the night he laced up the Adidas Yeezy 500, adding that the shoes performed better than the Yeezy 750 Boost.
As for a signature line, Young has his sights set on a lifestyle collection. "They gave me a P.E. shoe. They put it in stores, a basketball shoe. I didn't really want that, but I’ll take what I can get [laughs]," Young said. "But now we’re talking about doing lifestyle, doing a whole Most Hated collab."
