Nick Young has a unique personality, starting with his nickname "Swaggy P."

Time Warner Cable SportsNet analysts, and former Lakers champions, James Worthy and Byron Scott have Young's speech pattern down cold.

In a clip put together on the TWC website, Worthy and Scott both nail Young impersonations.

"I'm gonna come and do what Swaggy P do, I'm gonna score the ball," jokes Scott.

Young has been a steady player for the Lakers through 18 games, averaging 14.2 points on 44.1% shooting from the field.

While he's not known to be much of a defender, Coach Mike D'Antoni has praised his effort.

Young even made a key stop to preserve a win in the finals seconds over the Detroit Pistons, drawing a charge on Josh Smith.
