Nick Young is not going to stop being Nick Young.

Already this summer the Los Angeles Lakers guard -- who in July signed a four-year, $21.5 million deal to remain in his native Southern California -- has attended the MTV Video Music Awards with girlfriend Iggy Azalea, offered to be Lakers coach, drove a Zamboni during the Kings' Stanley Cup run, and threw out a hilariously bad first pitch at a Dodgers game.

Recently while in New York City -- where he attended Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week with J.R. Smith -- Swaggy P just couldn't help himself. When driving by a local court, Young simply had to get in on the action:

Caption: "Lol surprise some lil hoopers while driving thru these NY streets decided to stop and join they 3 on 3 ... I had to swag on them tho #JustBecause #NYFW #BallIsLife #BasketballJones"

We've said it before and we'll say it again: May Swaggy never stop.

Here's a new one: Alabama dropped in The Associated Press Top 25 ... despite winning. That's the level of respect Oregon is commanding after a thunderous come-from-behind victory over Michigan State on Saturday. The Ducks still aren't No. 1; that distinction belongs to defending national champion Florida State. What do you make of Oregon's No. 2 spot? Click on the logos below to set your rankings!

Thoughts on NFL's opening week?

The NFL is back! On the first Sunday, some teams (San Francisco 49ers, Denver Broncos) won as expected, others (New Orleans Saints, New England Patriots) suffered surprising defeats, and a few more (Dallas Cowboys, Kansas City Chiefs) were downright demoralized. On Monday, the Detroit Lions grabbed the headlines by routing the New York Giants. What's your take on some of the major questions from Week 1 action?

NFL is back; will Seattle repeat?

The Seattle Seahawks started this season the way they ended the last one: with an emphatic -- albeit not quite as dramatic -- win over a talented team with a star quarterback. Instead of embarrassing the Denver Broncos like in the Super Bowl, this time Seattle beat the Green Bay Packers 36-16 in the NFL's first game of 2014. Is this a sign that the Seahawks are in for a repeat?

The NFL is back, with the Green Bay Packers visiting the defending Super Bowl-champion Seattle Seahawks on Thursday night.

The players have come a long way, too. And we're not just referring to the Packers' flight to the Pacific Northwest. So as the 2014 season gets underway, let's take a look at some of the Packers' and Seahawks' stars, then and now:
