Little is going well this season for the 2-28 Detroit Pistons in their 20th season since their last NBA title in 2004. They haven’t won a single game since their 118-102 victory on October 28th versus the Chicago Bulls. Currently they sit a game away from tying the 2014-15 and 2015-16 Philadelphia 76ers' historical “Trust the Process” era record for most consecutive losses (28) .

The Pistons are projected to finish with a 6-76 record, which would make history the wrong way for most losses in an 82-game season. Never fear, Swaggy P is here. Former USC phenom, 2018 NBA Champion, arguably one of the most entertaining players ever, and a man of many words, Nick Young made his bid to the Pistons on social media.

At 38 years old himself, Young's best basketball is clearly behind him, but he has kept himself in basketball shape. Since his last NBA appearance with the Denver Nuggets in 2019, Young has been Team Captain for three consecutive seasons in Ice Cube's Big 3 League for the Enemies before recently being named head coach. They were previously coached by Young's former Washington Wizards backcourt mate, Gilbert Arenas, who himself has said Young is a “top 5 offensive talent in our NBA”.

While some might laugh or scratch their head in confusion , the services of an accomplished veteran might do this young Pistons team wonders. In a 2007 draft class that has only five active players remaining–most notably Young's former Golden State Warriors teammate, 2014 MVP, Kevin Durant–Young enjoyed one of the better careers of his class as a career 11.4 points per game spark-plug scorer. Surprisingly enough, an area the Pistons don't struggle in is bench scoring, ranking 8th by averaging 37.9 points per game.

Yet with a roster mostly comprised of promising but inexperienced 20 year olds led by former no. 1 overall pick Cade Cunningham that have never even sniffed the playoffs, as the old saying goes, beggars can't be choosers. The Pistons' next game is on Thursday on the road versus the best team this season, their historic rival, the Boston Celtics.

Perhaps the Pistons should think about giving the enigmatic Nick Young a call.
