Portland Imitates Dolphins, Attacks Nick Young

Between fines, poor shooting, and dolphin attacks, Nick Young has had a rough few days. So it's nice to see him break through with an And-1 here: He has scored 7 consecutive points now, so this might be one of those nights for him.

Nick Young not worried about foot injury

PORTLAND -- No injury is timely, but Nick Young was at least glad that he'll have some time to rest. The Los Angeles Lakers reserve guard suffered what the team called a "peroneal tendon strain" in his left foot -- meaning he strained a tendon near his ankle -- Wednesday in his team's 102-86 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers here at the Moda Center. Neither Young nor Lakers coach Byron Scott said they were sure how long Young would be sidelined, but Young didn't think the injury was all that serious.

Young recounts how dolphin tried to kill him

LOS ANGELES -- Nick Young strolled in to the Los Angeles Lakers' locker room at Staples Center a little more than an hour before the scheduled tipoff against the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday. The Lakers reserve guard wore a huge smile, as usual, and a black sweater with the word "ROMANTIC" stretched across the front, a timely message with Valentine's Day looming and with Young recently saying he just needs some "love" this month to get his slumping game back on track.

Iggy Azalea: Nick Young is Afraid of Dolphins

Recently Grammy-nominated rapper Iggy Azalea took to Twitter this morning to share a random anecdote about her boyfriend, Lakers sixth-man Nick Young: Nick is scared of Dolphins. — IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) February 10, 2015 Wait what? Why? A dolphin in Cabo tried to kill him once. I was there and to be fair, it's true. Now he won't go on the wild dolphin snorkel tour. Lol. — IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) February 10, 2015 That makes sense. But this fear also raises a lot of questions. Why would Nick Young resign to stay in a beach city if he is so afraid of dolphins? Are dolphins natural...

Young's shooting slump and mountiong losses take the Swag out of Lakers forward

CLEVELAND – As losses have piled up over the past two seasons – 93 of them now – there was always one person who could be relied on to prop up spirits. That would be the ever-smiling, jubilant Nick Young. But after a string of dismal shooting...

Young trying to regain his 'Swaggy P' game

CLEVELAND -- The upbeat "Swaggy P" persona has gone missing. The smiles and laughs and jokes have all been absent. In their place, Nick Young has just looked downtrodden, coming up short on everything from his shots to answers about why Lakers coach Byron Scott has been keeping him on the bench more and more lately. Sunday was another chapter in Young's ever-growing slump. He entered the Lakers' 120-105 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers having missed 12 consecutive field-goal attempts, two shy of his longest such drought this season.
