With Nick Young opting out of his contract with Los Angeles, Lakers fans have put on a full court press to keep the hometown kid.
Earlier in June Lakers Nation erected this fancy Swaggy P billboard, funded by over $4,500 of fan donations.

Then, on June 21, Lakers fan Ahmed Bin Sulayem posted a swaggy two-week billboard campaign of his own.
Bin Sulayem sees his billboard as both a chance to reach out to the team, and also a chance to honor Young. Per Emirates 247:
“These campaigns are not just about creating noise they are all about supporting legends that deserve recognition for their continuous drive that inspires and exceeds expectations of millions of fans and supporters every day.
“In my view, Nick Young epitomises exactly that and it would be amazing to see him in action at LA Lakers next season as well.”
