Golden State Warriors

Nick Young had a dream where Dennis Rodman told him he would have a defensive resurgence

The Warriors probably did not expect Nick Young to play meaningful minutes in important playoff games this year, but Andre Iguodala's injury has forced the team's hand.

For his part, the 33-year-old has been productive when his number has been called. He's shooting 40 percent from the field and 36.8 percent from 3-point range.

Young has even put in work on the other end of the floor, making timely defensive stops. After the Warriors' 115-86 Game 6 victory over the Rockets , the 10-year veteran talked about how this newfound defensive prowess came to be. Of course, he did it in typical Swaggy P fashion.

While both players made their marks in different eras, and at different positions, they aren't dissimilar. Their eccentric personalities and off-the-court issues often overshadow their production on the court.

Young isn't exactly putting on wedding dresses and dyeing his hair different colours, but ask yourself this: Do you associate No. 6 on the Warriors with Nick Young or Swaggy P?

Regardless, as long as the dream-based advice remains about Rodman's defensive abilities and nothing else, Golden State fans surely will welcome the two-time Defensive Player of the Year's presence in Young's mind with open arms.
