Lakers News: Kyrie Irving once asked Nick Young for clothes in the middle of a game

Most Hated? More like Most Loved. Nick Young’s play may have tailed off some after a scintillating start to the season, but sales of his “Most Hated” clothing evidently have not. Young has had enough success with the brand, in fact, that GQ decided to interview him about his fashion line. There was line in “Forrest Gump” that went something like “Interviews with Nick Young are like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get” (or something like that, I could be paraphrasing) and this one didn’t disappoint. According to Young, Kyrie Irving once asked him for...

Luke Walton won't (and shouldn't) change the Lakers' starting lineup

Luke Walton won't (and shouldn't) change the Lakers' starting lineup

The starters have been solid over Los Angeles’ last ten games. The Los Angeles Lakers’ starting lineup was a problem for them early in the season. Luol Deng and Timofey Mozgov weren’t playing up to the massive contracts the Lakers lavished upon them over the offseason, D’Angelo Russell and Julius Randle faced growing pains, Nick Young was Nick Young, and the whole unit never seemed to truly gel. 45 games into the NBA season that’s no longer the case, and so it was no surprise when Luke Walton told reporters on Tuesday that he didn’t plan on mixing things up any time soon. “I...

Brandon Ingram and Nick Young are bringing the Lakers’ master plan together

Isn’t it nice when you can watch the pieces fall into place?> I love it when a plan begins to come together. And while George Peppard wasn’t referring to the Lakers, it does seem as if this LA squad is beginning to look more like the A-Team the front office envisioned as they were piecing the roster together over the past several seasons. After an unexpectedly hot start, which admittedly only meant a 10-10 record, the team had a rough go of things in December finding themselves sitting at 12-24 when the calendar refreshed for ’17. They’ve looked much better since then, going 3-2...
Nick Young still believes the Lakers can make the playoffs

Nick Young still believes the Lakers can make the playoffs

It’s far from a guarantee, but it’s not surprising Los Angeles’ starting shooting guard thinks they should be in the conversation for the final spot. The Los Angeles Lakers haven’t totally dropped out of playoff contention, and the play of starting shooting guard Nick Young is a big reason why. Young is currently knocking down a scorching 44.4 percent of his three-point attempts, which ranks second in the entire NBA among high-volume shooters and has made him an invaluable asset for the team just months after it appeared he wouldn’t make the regular season roster. With unexpected...

Nick Young is shooting so well for the Lakers that he doesn’t need to practice

Nick Young is shooting so well for the Lakers that he doesn’t need to practice

We’re talkin’ ‘bout practice? They say practice makes perfect. Usually that’s true, unless you’re Nick Young. The Los Angeles Lakers’ shooting guard is shooting 44.9 percent on three-pointers this season, the best conversion rate among high-volume three-point shooters. If you’re shooting that well without extra practice, then you don’t need extra practice. Or at least that’s the understanding Young had come to with Luke Walton (via Mark Medina of the Orange County Register): “I joke with him when I see him running out the door [after shootaround] and ask if he got his...

Lakers Podcast: Discussing the team’s win over Memphis and trade speculation

Winning, it turns out, is a lot more fun to talk about. The Los Angeles Lakers played and, more importantly, won a basketball game again for the first time in the new year and are obviously about to go on one of the great runs in the history of professional sports. Or something like that. In all seriousness though, they played really, really well and beat a good Memphis Grizzlies team. D’Angelo Russell and Nick Young got the fun started with some insane shooting in the first half, then Julius Randle messed around and got a triple-double. Hosts Harrison Faigen and Anthony Irwin...

Lakers vs. Grizzlies Final Score: Julius Randle gets a triple-double in 116-102 victory

The Lakers look like they’re back on track in 2017. The Los Angeles Lakers ran the Memphis Grizzlies ragged in a 116-102 victory, notching their first win of 2017. There may be nothing left of the nets in STAPLES Center after Nick Young and D’Angelo Russell tore them apart, combining to go 12-of-19 from three-point range. The duo did most of their damage in the first half, where they connected on 10 shots from deep. That Julius Randle messing around to get a triple-double was buried by the lede is a great indication as to how smooth things went for the Lakers Tuesday night. Randle was...

Nick Young drilled a three-pointer on Tuesday. That was not the notable part. His dance to celebrate the three-pointer was.Yup, that’s some good, old-fashioned celebration pelvic thrusting. Now, there are a lot of variations of thrusting celebrations in sports. What Young does here is not what we would call the “Von Miller.”See, the “Von Miller” features much more authoritative thrusts. Young went with a rapid fire technique that is actually a NBA staple. It’s called the “Lance Stephenson. ...

Don’t say we didn’t warn you. D’Angelo Russell and Nick Young were absolutely on fire in the first half of the Los Angeles Lakers’ game against the Memphis Grizzlies.
