VIDEO: Jordan Farmar and Nick Young throw down 360 and reverse alley-oops at Lakers practice facility

Jordan Farmar and Nick Young have known each other since their days as standout L.A. high school basketball players – they were even enemies during their time at UCLA and USC – yet they’re now on the same side for a change.

VIDEO: Nick Young is working out at the Lakers’ practice facility – again

We’re a month away from the start of the Los Angeles Lakers’ 2013 training camp, but Nick Young has been putting in work all summer long.

It may...

VIDEO: The official NBA 2K14 trailer, featuring the Lakers, has been released

The full, official NBA 2K14 trailer has just been released.
