Nick Young says the Lakers’ goal is to win 30 games

Can they meet it? The Los Angeles Lakers aren’t going to be a playoff team. Such heights seemed like a possibility when the team rolled to a 10-10 start, but the Lakers now sit at 19-39, the third-worst record in the entire NBA. What is unknown is how many games the purple and gold can actually win, or whether or not Nick Young will even be with the team for the remainder of the season. He said this weekend that if the team deals him, he hopes it’s to a playoff team, but if they don’t, he says the Lakers have other goals in mind outside of the postseason. Young told Tania Ganguli of...

Lakers News: Nick Young weighs in on whether or not the earth is flat

Sure, why not. The biggest story of NBA All-Star weekend hasn’t been any of the action on the court. Because the NBA’s weirdest weekend of the year wouldn’t be complete without a bizarre discussion point, instead debate has raged over Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving’s assertion that the earth is flat. I’m not kidding. So in case you were living under a rock for the last 24-hours and somehow missed that lovely conspiracy theory, it is with this information in hand that I now offer you Nick Young’s opinion on the matter. "I don't know, I think the world could be --...

Lakers Nick Young barely missed the second round of the 3-point contest with his 18 points.

Nick Young says if the Lakers trade him, he hopes it’s to a playoff team

Swaggy-P(layoff push)? Nick Young has been consistently fantastic for the Los Angeles Lakers this season, and it’s mandatory to mention that no one would have expected the first half of this sentence to be a reality heading into the season. Young’s floor spacing has been a key factor in some of the Lakers’ best lineups this year. He is converting 41.3 percent of his attempts from 3-point range, the fourth-best rate in the league among high-volume shooters, ahead of players like first two-time MVP to blow a 3-1 lead in the NBA Finals Stephen Curry and flat-earth truther Kyrie...
