Nick Young posts video of Lakers’ starting line-up on NBA 2K14, gets excited when virtual self hugs Kobe Bryant


The Lakers’ season is rapidly approaching, but if you can’t hang on any longer, you can grab a copy of NBA 2K14 from October 1. If you can’t even wait that long to see what it’s like when the Lakers’ newest additions come together on the court, Nick Young‘s got you covered.

Young posted a video to his Instagram page which shows the Lakers’ starters on NBA 2K14 and Swaggy P can’t contain his excitement when his virtual self embraces Bryant before tip-off:

Young grew up in Los Angeles and idolized Bryant, so it must be a dream come true for him to not only play for the Lakers, but to also be the Black Mamba’s teammate. This video looks cool, but it’ll look even better when Kobe is healed and this is happening for real.

The Lakers’ training camp begins later this week.
