Lakers News: Ryan Kelly Upset That Robert Horry Called Him Out

Ryan Kelly

Following tonight’s 121-114 loss against the Phoenix Suns, the talk of the locker room was the heated altercation that occurred between Nick Young and Alex Len. Young was ejected tonight after he aggressively reacted to taking a flagrant foul from Len while he attempted a fast break layup.

In the post-game coverage tonight on Time Warner Cable, former Laker Robert Horry didn’t have some pleasant things to say about the team, as he felt that the players on the floor should have come to the defense of Young in that situation. In fact, he was specific and called out a few guys in particular:

Young was in agreement with Horry, and admitted that he did feel like his teammates should have been there for him. But given the Lakers roster situation and lack of depth, it’s understandable why some guys would refrain from overreacting, as that could potentially lead to further consequences.

When it was made known to Ryan Kelly that Horry had made some comments about him, he was not pleased according to ESPN’s Dave McMenamin:

This incident is something that this Laker team could ill afford. They have currently lost six games in a row, and a locker room issue would provide no benefit in aiding the situation. Hopefully they can grow from this and recover. They have a long road trip ahead and could use a bounce back victory on Friday against the Celtics.
