Damn. Nick Young's eyes looked pretty watery in that postgame interview.

 

Hope MDA finds a way to keep him coming off the bench. He deserves to be in contest for that 6th man award.

Nick is depressed because he's trying so hard to win for us.   

Even D'antoni said that Nick has been trying too hard lately.   Nick really wants to help us win games but he needs to pass the ball a little more.   But he's pretty much like Kobe right now, if we're in a hole he wants to single handedly dig us out of it for better or for worse and whenever he screws up you can see it in his entire body movement.  He loves this team, and this franchise means everything to him so you can probably see as emotional as he is he probably shoulders a lot of this on his shoulders and he really shouldn't.   He seems like he's the guy that would do anything to keep this team together and when we do bad he shoulders it all. 

Great guy and a true Laker, but he shouldn't shoulder so much.  Especially given our situation.

Nick Young, "We Ain't Have Fun In Awhile," Injuries Wearing On Team

Young says his team hasn't had fun in a long time and the injuries are definitely wearing on the team.

I swear he is the hardest guy to watch during an interview when he's in a down mood X_X  His voice even broke a couple of times.

He needs to keep coming off the bench. It's clear that's where he's most successful for whatever reason and also it'll keep him in contention for that 6th man of course.

Shawne Williams crashes Nick Young's interview. Young who's wearing sunglasses gets called out by Lakers spokesman John Black and tells him not to worry that "Swaggy P doesn't get fined."

I think Young will be back on the bench soon with the way Wes looked tonight.   Can only hope Wes doesn't suffer a setback.

Nick back to coming off the bench, Wes is fully healthy now I guess

 

 
  1. D'Antoni changes the starting lineup again after saying he was going to stick w/ same unit: Jodie, Marshall, Wes, Pau, Sacre vs DEN

Damn. Depressing interview from Nick tonight. His eyes were completely watery & red. He needed a hug. Said that it pains him to admit it, but they've lost a lot of their swag.

Nick Young offers up inspired message to Lakers fans and doubters, wearing a Magic Johnson Jersey to symbolize keeping your head up when "stuff happens".

Stuff happen !! Now shake it off keep yo head up and keep going.

I can't see Young leaving the Lakers.

 

And I wouldn't want him to. He's worked on better shot selection, defense, passing, etc. The most coveted quality is his ability to improve chemistry and elevate the moods around him, even after losses.
