Nick Young from the Los Angeles Lakers is the first player in the NBA to go on court with the adidas YEEZY Boost 750, the Kanye West-designed sneaker. The move comes shortly after the announcement that Young has signed a a deal with German sportswear giant adidas. Last night Young played in the high top YEEZY Boost 750 against the Houston Rockets and mentioned in an interview with the Associated Press that he wanted to come in with some style to celebrate the signing of the deal. The move made big waves on the Internet, in part because the sneakers are very limited and hard to get a hold of, but mainly also because people were scared he would hurt himself in them. We will have to see if Swaggy P, a name by which Young also goes, comes out again with some sneaker heat in the coming months.

Let's goo!!
