Magic Johnson mocked for calling Nick Young ‘Shaggy P’

Magic Johnson

Magic Johnson’s wide-ranging interview on ESPN’s First Take Monday morning had a lot of strange and memorable moments, but one appears to have caught the internet’s imagination.

In discussing some of the moves he made as the Los Angeles Lakers’ team president, Johnson referenced the departure of Nick Young, widely known for his “Swaggy P” nickname. Not quite widely enough, however, as Johnson referenced him a bit differently.

Naturally, the internet went right in on that.

Let’s just say something like this isn’t going to do much to convince people that Rob Pelinka’s supposed “backstabbing” was unjust or unwarranted.
