Golden State Warriors shooting guard Nick Young and one-time platinum pop artist Iggy Azalea split over a year ago. The pair infamously called off their engagement roughly six months after a teammate filmed Young admitting he’d cheated on Iggy multiple times. Young reportedly corroborated his own admissions by impregnating his ex while still with Iggy. None of the above stopped Young from throwing some shade at his former fiancée via Instagram Friday night.
Young posted a picture of himself next to his new teammate Andre Iguodala with the caption “My I.G.G.Y.”
The rather obvious joke here is that Young now rolls with the 2015 NBA Finals MVP and two-time champion who is sometimes referred to as “Iggy” and not the Iggy who is an Australian rapper that has repeatedly been accused of being a culture vulture.
Young’s shade didn’t go unnoticed.

For those who don't know, Nick Young used to be in a relationship with Iggy Azalea. https://t.co/8GS6CQdPvD
D’Angelo Russell—who filmed Young’s cheating admissions without his knowledge while he and Young were playing for the Lakers—has since been traded to the Brooklyn Nets. Meanwhile, Young became a free agent this summer and signed with the Warriors, who are prohibitive favorites to win the NBA title this season. And Azalea’s sophomore album Digital Distortion has yet to see a release date after Iggy took to Twitter in July to announce Def Jam wouldn’t be releasing any more singles from the project.
My album isn't canceled, it's just not having another single. It's still being released.— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) July 8, 2017
Given that Azalea said she had a psychotic breakdown and allegedly caught Young cheating with his ex-girlfriend (who he reportedly went on to have a child with), this might be a good time for Young to fall back on the IG slander.
