Byron Scott Tells Media To ‘Relax’ About Nick Young Not Playing

After an impressive win over the Washington Wizards earlier this week, the Los Angeles Lakers seemed to carry over some of the ball movement and team-oriented gameplay against the Atlanta Hawks at Philips Arena on Friday night.

Unfortunately, the Lakers couldn’t hold it together late in the fourth quarter with the Hawks taking control and ultimately coming out with the win. Los Angeles made plenty of mistakes throughout the game and head coach Byron Scott made some questionable moves, but it was Nick Young’s absence that left many wondering what was going on during Friday’s game.

Coach Scott was asked about why he chose to keep Young on the bench for a second straight game after the loss to the Hawks. Scott immediately responded with the following remarks about Young’s status via Mike Bresnahan of the Los Angeles Times:

Heading into the NBA off-season last summer, Scott made sure to let Young know that his game needed to improve on both ends of the floor in order get the minutes he’s used to playing. Although many wondered whether Young would react to the warning, the sixth man has played well in the first full month of the season and seems to have turned things around.

Despite Young playing well thus far, the 30-year-old has seemingly fallen out of Scott’s rotation for no apparent reason. Young hasn’t caused a fuss about not playing the last couple of games, but there’s no telling how long he may stay quiet if not given a reason for the benching.

Following the loss to the Hawks, the Lakers will go back on the road to play the Detroit Pistons on Sunday at The Palace of Auburn Hills. Kobe Bryant and company have five more games on the road before heading back to the Staples Center on Dec. 15 to host the Milwaukee Bucks.

What did Nick Young do?

  • he’s shooting 40 per cent from deep this year. that’s his mistake.

  • didn’t swaggy speak against the offensive coordination a week back? he said something like “we’re all just standing there without a plan, and not playing like a team.” i feel he’s being punished for that.

  • Nick Youngs comments must’ve gotten BS’s panties in bunch. All he did was tell the truth about the lack of identity and offensive philosophy out there, and that the team is pretty much a glorified traveling freakshow circus.

  • According to sources, it’s the “circus” comment he made about Kobe’s retirement.

  • Ya. I heard that remark. Also said they looked like clowns. Hasn’t played since.

  • reports are the reason he aint playing is because of the “matchups” lol lakers need as many guys as they can get to contribute to the team smh

  • different topic though, Embiid was listed as 7’0 in 2013, currently he is already 7’2…

  • Funny that Kobe made fun of Nick, Lin and Hill last season and the org did nothing, but Young makes fun of the Kobe chucking circus and gets sent to Siberia

  • because hate the present players roster too weak defense and also offense i like past LA Lakers 2010 roster

  • These guys are young. Have patience. No need to panic. Give it a few years, trust the process.

  • Sixers have an interesting dilemma. Embiid is a walking injury, Okafor is a walking lawsuit and Noel is offensively broken. Crazy that a team that has three of the best center prospects in the past five years still needs a center.

  • Unless Nick is injured there is no reason why he shouldn’t be playing other than Byron doing his typical mind games.

  • What sources? Kobe himself said he didn’t like it or want it.

  • They always mess something up on this site lol. Disqus looks to be out for new posts. Again, Lakers can’t shoot jack squat.

  • Fukk this gawd daymed site with all the bugs! Excuse me for abbreviating “he will”! And excuse me for wanting to read and write comments.

    Scott is completely destroying Swag. Remember when he was this happy guy with a smile on his face? By now the damage is done and I’m quite sure he will get traded. Much to the delight of many “fans” here. What a shame. I hope he finds the happiness in playing again.

    Wonder how much damage Byron will do to our kids and our future…

  • they got saric and covington at the backcourt, philly will play big ball to counter small ball lol
