Lakers News: Nick Young Says MarShon Brooks Is His ‘Protege’
[new_royalslider id=”204″]

MarShon Brooks had a very good debut game for the Lakers last night, pouring in 14 points in helping the Lakers to a victory over the Boston Celtics.

Brooks’ penchant for scoring and getting to the line reminded many of Nick Young. That sentiment makes perfect sense as ESPN’s Dave McMenamin reports that Young is taking Brooks under his wing:

This is the kind of thing that can really help shape a young player’s career. Brooks and Bazemore for that matter, could stand to learn a lot from someone like Young.

Young has spoken in the past about Kobe Bryant helping him and coaching him from the sideline, and now Young has the opportunity to do the same thing.

With the Lakers unlikely to make the playoffs this season, the remainder of the Lakers’ games will serve as an evaluation for players like Brooks and Bazemore, as well as Kendall Marshall, Jordan Farmar, Xavier Henry, and Wesley Johnson.

If the coaching staff and front office see Brooks in the practice facility learning and working with the veterans like Young, it will do a lot to help his standing with the team.

Brooks is already benefiting from the coaching and encouragement of Mike D’Antoni, now he gets to reap the rewards of working with other great wing players on a regular basis.
