PLAYERS: Nick Young
TEAMS: Los Angeles Lakers
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. Aside from getting it in on the pro-am summer league circuit, he’s been working out constantly. Just the other day he posted a photo from the Lakers’ practice facility – an image that set off Matt Barnes’ rant about Laker fans – and now the Lakers’ official Vine account have posted a video of Swaggy P getting shots up in El Segundo: Swaggy in the gym. https://t.co/u6r53NIsH7— Los Angeles Lakers (@Lakers) August 28, 2013 Young will be playing in a new system next season under Mike D’Antoni, so getting in early work is vital to his success next year. Not only is he working on different aspects of his game at the Lakers’ facility, but he’s also around the team’s coaches who will likely be bringing him up to speed with D’Antoni’s system. Swaggy P is ready to have a big year; he should be fun to watch. .bottom-of-post-responsive { width: 300px

Nick Young frequently plays with Lakers on NBA 2K13; scores 30 to 40 points with himself

It appears he’s tweaked the rosters so he’s playing for L.A. (maybe he traded Dwight Howard to Philadelphia?) and he’s apparently filling it up on a nightly basis, and he does...

NBA executive: If Lakers struggle early, they may look to trade Pau Gasol

When Dwight Howard bolted for Houston last month, at least one man with ties to the Los Angeles Lakers was happy.
