Of course. Could it have been anyone else?

Nick Young has been repeatedly asked by reporters and by fans on social media about where his nickname, Swaggy P, came from.

Young took to Instagram on Thursday to set the record straight -- and his answer is far from disappointing --

God came to a dream and talked to me and gave me that name. I was like, 'you know what God, that's a funny name...I might need to run with it.' And ever since then, I've been calling myself Swaggy P. It's a household name.

One thing's for sure...Swaggy P's got some friends in high places.

Thanks to Nate Scott of For The Win for the find.
