Los Angeles Lakers head coach Byron Scott got a kick out of Nick "Swaggy P" Young's expressed desire to pick up the assist on the shot that pushes Kobe Bryant past Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan on the NBA's all-time scoring list.
He was so amused, that he issued this playful barb in Young's direction, via Mike Trudell of Lakers.com:
Byron Scott informed that Swaggy P wants to give Kobe the assist to surpass Jordan: "Nick hasn't passed all year," he said.
