Nick Young and Iggy Azalea flirt via Twitter

A post about a Lakers player flirting with female rapper via Twitter? Yep, it’s most definitely still the off-season.

Earlier today, Nick Young took part in “Woman Crush Wednesday” – otherwise known as WCW – when he tweeted about his “interest” in Australian-born rapper Iggy Azalea:


Young made the rookie mistake of leaving off the @ name of Azalea. Luckily, one helpful fan came to his rescue:

Thanks to the fan, Iggy saw Young’s tweet and seemingly started Twitter stalking him. In fact, she even checked out Young’s Instagram, but blew her cover when she reposted one of his images about dating an athlete:

Despite Iggy’s obvious interest, Young played it cool with his reply; he is Swaggy P after all:

The two then proceeded to follow each other on Twitter – they may even be sending direct messages as we speak.

So, if you see Iggy sat in courtside seats at a Lakers game next year, you now have an idea as to why she may be there. Watch this space.
