Lakers Podcast: Will Nick Young have the greatest three-point contest performance ever?

Maybe, just maybe not in the way you think. With Kobe Bryant retired, the Los Angeles Lakers don’t have a participant in the actual All-Star game this weekend, but there are still a few members of the purple and gold involved in the festivities. Nick Young will be in the three-point contest, while D’Angelo Russell and Brandon Ingram will suit up for the Rising Stars game. Host Harrison Faigen and guest Bryant Freese discussed what they’re most excited about for All-Star Weekend (hint, it’s the endless possibilities of what could happen with Young in the three-point contest). Before...

NBA: Lakers Could Trade Lou Williams And Nick Young, To Keep First Round Pick

NBA: Lakers Could Trade Lou Williams And Nick Young, To Keep First Round Pick

The Los Angeles Lakers will extend their franchise record for missing the playoffs to four straight seasons. That does not make any of the moves that the Lakers do or do not make prior to the February 23 trade deadline any less important. Los Angeles (19-39) enter the NBA’s All-Star beak with the third worst record in the league. The Lakers are 3-7 in their last 10 games, and just 9-29 after getting off to a promising 10-10 start. The Lakers are a game ahead of the Phoenix Suns, who have the second worst record at 18-39, and two games behind the Orlando Magic (21-37). They are also three...

Nick Young calls three-point participation a blessing

What it’s like to be discussed as a trade piece is complicated for Lakers guard Nick Young. “It depends,” Young said. “When they talk about you in trades or being let go, there’s just so much negativity around, that’s bad. But when you’re doing good, and teams want you, they want to trade for you,...

Tarik Black enters Lakers' first unit, Timofey Mozgov to bench

Los Angeles Lakers forward/center Tarik Black will move into the starting lineup for Monday's matchup with the New York Knicks, sending Timofey Mozgov to the bench. What It Means: Black will join D'Angelo Russell, Nick Young, Brandon Ingram and Julius Randle in the starting unit. The Lakers are beginning to focus more on developing their young core, meaning both Black and Ivica Zubac should see increased opportunity over the season's second half. If you're looking for a speculative add, Zubac is probably the preferred play. Black is averaging 6.8 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.0...

Nick Young shot so badly against the Wizards he thought he’d get dropped from the three-point contest

His fears were unfounded. Everything was coming up Nick Young on Thursday. The Los Angeles Lakers’ starting shooting guard had been named to the NBA’s three-point shooting contest at All-Star Weekend in New Orleans. It was a deserved honor for Young, whose 41.6 percent shooting from deep is a career-high and ranks ninth in the NBA among players to attempt at least 200 threes. Young’s momentum did not carry into the Lakers’ loss to the Wizards, in which Young went 1-8 from three-point range, which led to worry the NBA might decide they had made a mistake in naming him to the...
