Nick Young heads into his second season with the Los Angeles Lakers embracing the veteran role by taking the team’s rookies under his wing. Along with providing veteran advice to Jordan Clarkson and Julius Randle, the team’s sixth man has been having a little fun with the two players fresh out of college.
During an interview Young did with Mike Trudell of Lakers.com, the veteran let it be known the rookies will be addressing him a little different this season. Young said the following about what Randle and Clarkson will have to call him:
“It got a little swag in it.”
Clarkson then told Trudell what Young will be called next season:
Will Clarkson and Randle follow through with their rookie duties in their first year in Los Angeles?
Clarkson appears to be all in, but Randle seemed a bit hesitant. Trudell asked the Kentucky the product what he needs to call Young next season. Randle’s response was extremely hard to hear with the rookie using his two-inch voice and not clarifying his comments at all.
Regardless of getting no clarity from Randle, it’s obvious Young or Daddy Swag intends to use all the perks of a veteran player on the two Lakers rookies this season.[divide]
