Philadelphia 76ers guard and future free agent Nick Young is facing a very serious situation this offseason. Young is facing allegations of sexual assault from a woman that he met in a bar and allegedly drugged and raped. While the accusations are serious, Young is keeping a level head and seems fairly confident that he is innocent.

Young repsonded to the allegations today on his Instagram account when he posted a photo of rapper Tupac accompanied by the caption, “Don’t believe everything you hear. Real Eyes. Realize. Real Lies.”

He went on to add:

“I was shocked with the amount of people who actually believed that Swaggy would do such a thing! I take my craft and my reputation seriously. I have a son that looks up to me as well as fans that are children. I would never want them to think of me in such a way. I learned that God has a way of showing things: Who my real friends are, who I can trust and who has my best interest. So to my family, friends, coaches, teammates and fans that supported me through this challenging time I want to say thank you for believing in me. Your support and prayer means the world to me. At this I want to say God is everything so keep yo faith, keep smiling and swagging on these haters.”

Hopefully Young is telling the truth, but you can never be too sure.

Remember, it is not fair to judge either side until all of the facts come out, but Young’s denial is very strong and his confidence makes you believe that there is no way he will ever be found in the wrong.
