Lakers second-round pick Ivica Zubac wants to prove he can stay in L.A.

Ivica Zubac, who the Lakers selected with the 32nd pick in the NBA draft last month, tried to take everything in Tuesday at the Lakers practice facility — the trophies, banners, jerseys and then all of the questions. It was understandably a bit overwhelming for the Bosnian-born 19-year-old.  “It’s...

Lakers rookie Brandon Ingram is set to begin summer league

Brandon Ingram, selected by the Lakers with the second pick in the NBA draft last month, is ready to begin summer league games in Las Vegas. Ingram knows there is pressure building on him — Lakers General Manager Mitch Kupchak confirmed that by moving him into Kobe Bryant’s old locker — but the...

Watch the Lakers' Nick Young pick up an exploding firework and somehow escape unscathed

Nick Young did something really stupid over the holiday weekend. Luckily he lived to tell about it — and he can even gesture with both hands and all 10 fingers while relating the story if he wants. Check out this video TMZ obtained from what it says is a Fourth of July party at the Lakers’ shooting...

Veteran presence Nick Young gives young Lakers a lesson in firework safety

Swaggy-P(utting on a display of how not to use fireworks). "I believe children are the future." That's not a quote from Los Angeles Lakers forward Nick Young, but it very easily could be. Youth is in the air around the purple and gold this summer, with the team officially introducing rookies Brandon Ingram and Ivica Zubac on Tuesday, and the rest of the roster (other than veterans Lou Williams, Timofey Mozgov, and Luol Deng) are all at or under the age of 23. In that spirit, the oldest player on the Lakers decided to do his part to give his young teammates a lesson in firework safety on...

The Lakers are expected to trade or waive Nick Young before training camp

Swaggy-P(robably gone) It has become increasingly clear to anyone monitoring the situation from up close or afar that it would make very little sense for the Los Angeles Lakers to retain Nick Young for any longer. The former fan favorite has a reported two years and $11 million left on the four-year contract he signed two years ago (the fourth year of the deal is a player option), and while that price tag doesn’t look horrendous under the new cap, it’s probably time for the team to make a change to improve locker room dynamics in the wake of Young’s fractured relationship with...

Iggy Azalea says Nick Young cheating led to the end of their engagement

Azalea provided more details on why she broke things off their engagement on Twitter Thursday morning. Probably the lowest point of the Los Angeles Lakers’ 17-win season was when a video of Nick Young admitting to infidelity (recorded by D’Angelo Russell) became public and led to the isolation of Russell in the locker room. This event, arguably as much as any poor play, helped lead to the perception of a failed rookie year for Russell. All over social media, people called Russell a “snitch” (check his Instagram comments sometime), or said he broke the “bro code,” or other such...
