You probably heard how Nick Young arrived at Staples Center for Friday night’s game against the Washington Wizards while wearing a pair of the highly sort after Air Yeezy 2 Red Octobers from Nike.

You also probably heard that Swaggy P claims he received the shoes for free, despite their going price of $6,000, and he won’t even tell his teammates where he got them from.

Well, the day after he debuted the Kanye West kicks at Staples, he posted a photo to his Instagram account showing him wearing the shoes.

He put a lot of thought into the caption, too.

“Ppl be lovin’ the old Ye, they sayin’ the new Ye, that dude be spazzin’ But when Ali turn up and be Ali, you can’t ever take that n**** back to Cassius,” Young wrote, as he quoted “Sanctified” by Rick Ross and Kanye. “People sayin’, “Ye we need another Yeezus” Lames try to tell me, “Cut the wilin’ out, out” But who is you reaching’. #YeezySeason.”

Yep, this is just further clarification that Nick Young is awesome.
