At the present moment, Kobe Bryant and D'Angelo Russell are the only two Los Angeles Lakers players with their own signature shoe deals. Whether he's joking or not, sixth man Nick Young claims he's next on the list.

Young is a huge shoe fan -- so much so that he has his own "shoe house" with over 500 pairs of sneakers and two dedicated employees, or "shoe keepers," that are tasked with looking after his collection.
"The property, tucked behind a gate in the San Fernando Valley neighborhood of Tarzana, comes with a detached building that Young is converting into a “shoe house,”' Sports Illustrated's Lee Jenkins wrote recently. "He employs not one but two “shoe keepers,” who oversee his 500-plus pairs of sneakers, a collection that includes Vans fitted with roller-skating wheels."
