Lakers Fan in Dubai Pays for “Stay Nick Young” Billboard (Photo)
Talk about being a true fan.
Dubai resident and Los Angeles Laker superfan Ahmed Bin Sulaymen has taken out a billboard in hopes of convince Swaggy P himself, Nick Young to remain with the Lakers.
The billboard contains a smile reminiscent of Swaggy’s with a grill spelling out “STAY” and is probably the most Swaggy P thing a Laker fan could do. The billboard also does a bit of adveritising for Bin Sulaymen, adding his Instagram and Twitter handles near the bottom.
This isn’t the first time that Bin Sulaymen has shown off his Laker fandom. Last year, he thanked Kobe Bryant and called him “The Greatest of All-Time” in a one-page ad taken out in the Los Angeles Times.

Laker fans everywhere are hoping his efforts work as Young was one of few bright spots in a terrible Laker season.
