So this is going to be interesting.
Needless to say, Lakers' Nick Young has a reputation as a chucker. There is no spot from anywhere on the court that Nick won't shoot from and show just how much he doesn't know the words "passing the ball." Then there's Kobe Bryant. A player who throughout his NBA career is known for also taking many shot attempts.
The issue is Young is very streaky while Kobe is quite the consistent shooter and can hit the clutch shot more so than Nick.
Well if this is the attitude Young is going to be taking to L.A. come training camp, it should make for quite the interesting mix on the court but in the end, something is going to have to give.
Check out Young simply saying how Bryant won't keep him from getting his shots up (h/t Los That Sports Blog). Have fun next season Lakers fans!

Tweet Nick “Swaggy P”Young is one of the most enigmatic, charismatic and unpredictable players in the NBA. As of NBA Free Agency this summer, he’s also now a member of the Los Angeles Lakers. The thing that is pretty commonly known about Swaggy P is that he likes to shoot and that’s about all he [...]
Who is Ryan Kelly? When I first heard his name I thought he was a Senator from one of the Midwest states, but that wasn’t true. For starters, he was the 48th overall pick by the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2013 NBA Draft.
This was an odd selection for the Lakers, because their general manager is a North Carolina fan and Ryan Kelly is from Duke. For those who watch college basketball...
Indiana Pacers guard Paul George is spending the week in Las Vegas training at USA Basketball’s minicamp. He says every time he runs into a Los Angeles Lakers fan, they ask him if he’s coming to L.A. “ ’Paul, are you coming to L.A.? Let’s get you in L.A.’ That’s all I’ve been hearing
Knicks star Carmelo Anthony said he has no interest in joining the Lakers, despite speculation that he could end up in Los Angeles after next season.
An Arizona appellate court says Los Angeles Lakers star Steve Nash may have to pay additional child support for his three children and that he and his ex-wife can't say bad things about each other through social media.
A Court of Appeals panel's ruling Tuesday says a judge must consider ordering Nash to pay more than the children's ''basic needs.''
Well, this is a pretty awkward interview. First, the LA Time Warner SportsNet reporter asks Whitecaps co-owner Steve Nash why he is at the LA Galaxy vs. Vancouver Whitecaps MLS game. Nash then adds that it is his friend’s bachelor party which is followed by said bachelor videobombing and f-bombing the televised interview.

For those of you wondering what the Los Angeles Lakers are doing with all those Dwight Howard jerseys they have stocked up in their Team LA store at the Staples Center, it appears that they are getting a heavy discount.
The authentic jerseys are going for about $20 bucks a piece (down from 85-125) and check out the huge pile below:

In what has been an ongoing feud for quite some time Kobe Bryant’s mother Pamela, has cashed in on quite the score as she has sold several pieces of rare memorabilia. In the past Kobe has shown his distaste for the subject matter in a tweet, however personally I believe this is a travesty and no one family member should ever exploit the other. Maybe someday they will make up. A...
Athletes and Divorce. There have been some pretty nasty ones as of late. Dwyane Wade and Siohvaughn Funches, Deion and Pilar Sanders, Kris and Anna Benson, Allen and Tawanna Iverson, the list goes on and on. It appears the tide has switched and marrying or having a child by a professional athlete does not necessarily guarantee a platinum paved walk of victory in red-bottomed Louboutins...
They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but I think that there may be one form that is even better that applies to the sports world--trying to poach/steal/entice players from another team over to yours.
From what I've heard via the World Wide Web, the Los Angeles Lakers are not trying to do that with Indiana Pacers star Paul George (because there are rules...
Carmelo Anthony was asked by paparazzi in Hollywood about the possibility of signing with the Los Angeles Lakers next offseason.
Anthony has an early termination option on his contract with the New York Knicks in 2014 and was asked if he could see himself in a "purple and gold outfit."
"Uh, I doubt it," Anthony answered. "It's not a outfit, though."...
