The Los Angeles Lakers in attendance (Nick Young, Jeremy Lin and Wayne Ellington) at this year’s 11th Annual Lakers All-Access event, hosted by the Los Angeles Sports & Entertainment Commission, had the audience in stitches after showing their funny side in a candid panel, emceed by Bill Macdonald.
It’s not everyday fans get to see their favorite Lakers in a less professional environment, cracking jokes and showing their true, witty personalities. In our hilarious videos below, Lin and Ellington can’t help but poke fun at who wears the pants in Young’s relationship with rap artist Iggy Azalea. Ellington won’t tell Young his wedding date, and Lin cracks jokes about how Young was able to graduate from USC.
Young can’t believe Lin was born in Torrance, California, laughing, “I thought you was born somewhere far!” Young is also asked to reveal the meaning behind his Swaggy P nickname, and let’s just say, he gives quite the answer.
Plus, Young takes over the microphone and starts asking Lin and Ellington questions. While barely able to contain his own laughter, Young asks Lin who he would rather play with – Kobe Bryant or Carmelo Anthony?
Needless to say, in addition to being pure entertainment, all of these videos are hilarious examples of these athletes unique personalities.
