Thanks to the fine folks over at the Los Angeles Times, we now know that the Lakers guard Nick Young has already decided to start letting the trash talk fly in the direction of Kobe Bryant.
As Bryant stepped on the Lakers practice court for the first time since his injury, Young has decided to let some verbal barbs fly in the direction of Kobe:
“I’ve been talking trash to him a little bit to get out there,” Young said. “I’m just waiting for him to get out there so I can go at him, you know, stop dodging me.”
Young may be motivational, but he’s not delusional.”I can talk trash now because he can’t do nothing right now,” Young said of Bryant, who is recovering for a torn Achilles’ tendon.
Bryant did some light jogging on the court and some shooting Wednesday. And of course he fired back at Young behind closed doors.
“He’s saying he’s been watching me and I only go right or something like that,” Young said. “He’s studying me right now.”
