Nick Young has had a hell of a year for himself. And if you don't want to take our word for it, Nick Young's girlfriend Iggy Azalea will help set the record straight.
The 7th year swingman has had a big year for the admittedly struggling Los Angeles Lakers, and is taking that fame to new heights. Young took to Twitter to declare Austrailian rapper his #WomanCrushWednesday and the rest is history. The couple later met up in Los Angeles and began dating from there. In an article in GQ, Azalea explained what she saw in the man they call Swaggy P.
Nick's really goofy and funny. We don't really watch basketball in Australia. I always joke with him, ‘I hope we don't break up, because you'd ruin basketball for me.’ I really hope he doesn't ruin basketball for me.”
Not to be outdone, Nick Young chimes in on what attracted him to Iggy
Because of the way she dresses and her, uh, figure. It's hard to top that,ya know?
To save you guys the legwork of having to look it up yourselves, and considering you know that's why our site exist, we dug for some more information on Iggy Azalea. Iggy, born Amethyst Amelia Kelly in 1990, is a model and rapper made famous for being one of the first non-American females to ever be named one of XXL's Freshman talents. Iggy previously dated A$AP Rocky, which included her getting a tattoo of A$AP on her fingers. After the couple split in July, 2012, Iggy went through the process to have the ink covered up leaving her readily available to take up with Young in November, 2013.

Roy Hibbert's girlfriend Valerie Cooke is one of the few to slow down the Pacers center. As one of the most dominant big men in the league, Hibbert is a key cog to the Pacers run for the Eastern Conference title this year. While there's rarely an instance of hesitation when it comes to Hibbert on the floor, it appears there's been some reason for pause off the court in months.
Hibbert and Cooke met while attending Georgetown together and have been dating ever since. In 2012, Hibbert got down on one knee and the couple became engaged with a wedding date set for August 31, 2013. August 31 came and went, without much notice of a wedding having taken place. There are rumors online that some of the wedding precursors such as a bachelor party, and bridal shower have already gone down during the summer of 2013.
Things get complicated in December 2013, when Hibbert mentioned his fiance, and not his wife. While our best efforts to verify the truth are inconclusive at best, we are still under the impression that the couple is together. We'll keep our eyes peeled to see if we learn any more on the official status of the Hibbert-Cooke marriage, but as of now, it's radio silence.
As we mentioned, Valerie Cooke attended Georgetown with Hibbert, where she got a degree in Marketing & International Business. She is currently working in the marketing field at a small company in Indianapolis. Cooke was born in 1987 in Connecticut before going on to Georgetown Prep.

DeMar DeRozan is one of the bright spots for the suddenly less woeful Toronto Raptor. And while things have been going well for the team on the court, DeMar DeRozan's girlfriend Kiara Morrison has been providing that same stability off the floor.
Off the floor, DeRozan's been on solid run. DeMar DeRozan has been dating Kiara Morrison since attending USC together where they both played basketball. The couple just had their first child in 2013, while also getting engaged the same year. Kiara is known to bring their daughter to Raptors games rocking a #10 onesie with a "Baby DeRozan" nameplate.
Sunday's All-Star game will be another domino in a successful run on the floor. After being drafted at #9 overall in 2009, DeRozan quickly became known for his high flying dunks. In 2011, he finished second to Nate Robinson in the Slam Dunk contest by a final vote of 51% to 49%. DeRozan has stayed in Toronto where his career has blossomed beyond highlight reel dunks, culminating with his 2014 reserve nomination.
