Nick Young On Ejection: ‘There’s A Lot Of Frustration’
Usatsi_8981630_153179170_lowres

The Los Angeles Lakers never led in Sunday’s loss to the Detroit Pistons, the second consecutive game that has occurred. With the team winning only three of its first 20 games this season, there is sure to be some anger building up, and it hit a boiling point for Nick Young.

Young was fouled hard on a drive in the fourth quarter and shoved Pistons forward Anthony Tolliver into the stands, which eventually earned him a Flagrant-2 and ejection.

After the 111-91 loss in Detroit, Young said that frustration played a part in his reaction according to Baxter Holmes of ESPN:

Young did put the blame on himself for his reaction, but also said that he did not punch Tolliver according to Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News:

The distinction between a push and a punch could be the difference in whether Young is suspended for the Lakers next game which comes against the Toronto Raptors. If the NBA determines that it was a punch, Young will surely be sitting for at least the next game.

This game was Young’s first action in the last three games, but he has played well so far this season and is shooting better than 40 percent from three-point range. This much losing is going to take its toll, however, even for someone as happy as Young normally is.

well when you have a coach like scott it should be tough

  • I feel bad for Nick. He came in playing great, he was efficient and playing defense then Byron decides to mess with his head and bench him. He is actually someone who grew up a Lakers fan and enjoys playing for the team despite their awful record yet Byron wants to make sure Nick is as miserable as possible. You have young efficient players on the bench yet he’d rather play Kobe and Metta like its 2010.

  • Nick been benched on a team that won 3 games this season. I can tell he’s getting screwed by Scott & is getting traded. I hope we can get a 1st rounder from a playoff team for him.

  • That move hurt any trade value he had. Teams don’t want guys that immature.

  • A winning team this will never happen. He’s tired of the losing. He been playing this season on defense & offense has been efficient.

  • Typical Nick.

    In one statement we see why he’s a role player and not a leader. He’s letting the situation affect him and lashing out. At 30, you’d think he would have a mentality stronger than a rookie.

  • I just hope JC and Nick gets traded to a playoff contender. They deserve better than this. Both of them are tired of losing with this stupid Lakers team.

  • JC traded? No way… Nick, well if Byron is still here, that is definitely a possibility. In any case they need the dude they drafted from Stanford to get some minutes.

  • That might be the Lakers plan all along. If they trade nick then A. Brown will get his minutes.

  • Do you really think the young players are children and are easily impressionable?

    I am impressed however, you wrote 7 sentences and didn’t use the word Kobe.
    But, instead you went on an anti-Scott rant.

    Do we really have to read your nonsense until June (and beyond)?

  • NO ONE CURRRZZZ. YOU GUYS PROTECTED BYRON WHEN HE MISTREATED LIN LAST SEASON. YOU GUYS CALLED LIN FANS CRAZY WHEN WE DID THE SAME THING THAT NICK YOUNG DID (CALLING OUT BYRON). NOW YOU GUYS ARE SIDING WITH NICK YOUNG…

    SO WHAT COMES AROUND, GOES AROUND. I HOPE BYRON STAYS WITH THE LAKERS FOR ANOTHER 10 YEARS. I DON’T FEEL SORRY FOR YOU. TA-TA!

    SO GLAD J LIN LEFT. I ALSO DON’T REMEMBER LIN LETTING BYRON GET TO HIM LIKE HE DID TO NICK. J LIN IS MENTALLY STRONGER THAN MOST NBA PLAYERS.

  • NO ONE CURRRZZZ. YOU GUYS PROTECTED BYRON WHEN HE MISTREATED LIN LAST SEASON. YOU GUYS CALLED LIN FANS CRAZY WHEN WE DID THE SAME THING THAT NICK YOUNG DID (CALLING OUT BYRON). NOW YOU GUYS ARE SIDING WITH NICK YOUNG AND ARE AGAINST BYRON…

    SO WHAT COMES AROUND, GOES AROUND. I TOLD YOU SO. I ALSO TOLD YOU UR TEAM IS ONLY GOING TO GET 5 WINS THIS SEASON BEFORE THE SEASON EVEN STARTED BUT NO ONE BELIEVED ME. I ALSO SAID THAT DRAFT PICK WOULD DO NOTHING FOR YOU LAST SEASON. THE TANK SUPPORTERS PROBABLY WISH THEY WEREN’T TANKING FOR A PICK ANYMORE. I HOPE BYRON STAYS WITH THE LAKERS FOR ANOTHER 10 YEARS. I DON’T FEEL SORRY FOR YOU. NOT ONE BIT. YOU GET ONE MORE SEASON OF KOBE BRICKING AND I HOPE YOU GET 10 MORE SEASONS OF BYRON TANKING.

    SO GLAD J LIN LEFT. I ALSO DON’T REMEMBER LIN LETTING BYRON GET TO HIM LIKE HE DID TO NICK. J LIN IS MENTALLY STRONGER THAN MOST NBA PLAYERS.

    THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN NICK AND LIN IS THAT LIN HAS A BIG FAN BASE SO WHEN BYRON DNP-CD LIN ONE GAME LAST SEASON, HE HAD TO PLAY HIM A LOT NEXT GAME CAUSE WE TOLD HIS A$$ AND THE LAKERS ORG. NICK DOESN’T HAVE THAT FANBASE POWER SO HE GOTTA PUNCH PEOPLE TO MAKE HIS POINT. TA-TA!

  • Nobody gives a damn about what you think. You upvote yourself just so people can see your comment lol…pathetic.

  • so did lin, a nice comfortable spot on the bench. he has court side seats to watch kemba walker every night.

  • you keep trying to trade with memphis? at least ask for gasol or conley

  • Don’t let the player off the hook that easily. Byron Scott didn’t get Nick Young ejected.

  • FN bullies Detroit Pee ons. They’re up by a bizzilion and Nick tries to slam on a breakaway and Ant Tollhouse cookie has to contest it. What a FN loser. He could have flashed by him, but to foul him hard…that’s pretty bush league.
    Reminded me of the Great Santini. I wonder what Jeff Kats on 710am is going to say about stupidity and the Pee ons.

  • Have somebody try to take your head off on a breakaway dunk when their team is up by 30.
    Not Cool and shows that some players just want the head lines.
    Look Coach…I contested a breakaway dunk…
    Would he have done that to MWP? Don’t think so.

  • The season of frustration remix…

    “‘You would go out there and want to play the right way, but everyone wanted to prove themselves,” 

    *Dloading blank stare*

    “‘So nobody really knew what was going on. Nobody ever knew, so it was hard for anyone to come in and get into a good rhythm or flow. Nobody was playing together.” …

    Nick was told he was not gonna play the next 3-4 games as Byron was trying new things… Nick plays in the Pistons game last night?

    *Nick Young blank stare/Toliver dare*

    Last season was a year to forget for the Lakers. Let’s see if they can prove Johnson’s assertion wrong this season.

    20 games in it’s already too late, Wes has been proven absolutely right.

  • The game is emotional and physical.
    Nick Young shouldn’t be traded.
    He’s the electricity that sparks up the court.

    ByScott is just there to place hold. Jeannie said they aren’t going to keep firing coaches every 18 months. Well, we are at the 18th month, and this looks like a trash fire waiting to be put out.

  • i dont think its a sign of immaturity. i think its a sign of someone wanted to win badly.

  • Let’s trade Byron Scott. This ain’t the 80′ or the 90’s. Let’s get someone that knows about basketball now. I’m all for legends but Byron is stuck in Showtime. That’s not how the game is played anymore. All Byron is doing is showcasing Kobe like it’s a travelling circus at the expense of the team and the fans. He’s coaching to make Kobe a BFF, not to win games, develop players or even to win over prospective free agents.

  • MWP would have got him……
    I think I would have reacted like swaggy only I would have swung.
    if your gonna take me out and try to hurt me.
    I’m definitely going to get you back for it.
    its careless and reckless to try and injure another guy.
    Toliver deserved to get decked hes lucky…….

  • lol the NBA is so soft today.
    I like to see some physical play.
    but when a guy goes up for a dunk and you hit him for the side like that.
    he cant land right and he could get injured.
    if someone did that sh*t to me they would be missing a few teeth.
    its careless to do that to another player.
    what if swaggy P got hurt?
    no one would be questioning his motives then……would they?

  • Exactly man he didn’t have to do that.
    They were up by at least 25 points……
    He is lucky nick didn’t punch him.
    And coach scott benches guys for way too long this is creating huge problems.
    where is Tariq black and Anthony brown? scott needs to fix his mistakes and stop making the players out to be the bad guys. it is scott’s fault I’m on nick youngs side.

  • Win badly by taking himself out of the game? Interesting, so you are saying he thought they had a better chance to win without him. I guess I can see that.

  • Nick may not be my fav player but I’m on his side this time.
    I don’t blame him at all for how he reacted.
    Its frustration coach scott has put on the players.
    The coach needs to check himself or hes gonna get fired eventually…….
    at this rate? maybe soon.

  • Of course not. He may have overreacted but it was just a push. The NBA agreed and won’t ban him any games but I understand his annoyance. Maybe they are gearing up to trade him.

  • IDK but the fact that they aren’t playing him either means Byron’s is acting all butt hurt over something Nick said or did or they want to see Lou without Nick which means trade season is upon us. I mean why did they grab a 6 feet tall version Nick Young anyway? We already have the real deal. It makes you wonder. They complained about ball movement then went out and got another ball hog. It’s like they got him to replace Nick, or got him to trade him since he has 6th man value. Who knows.

  • I would keep both and trade Kelly sacre huertas or bass.
    and why does scott keep using bass as a center?
    that’s Tariq black’s job Center.
    coach scott needs to have his brain examined.asap!

  • Ugh stop mentioning Wes! He has enough problems in Clipperland. All that so called talent and their record isn’t that great.

  • It’s the NBA, guys fight over less. Male ego mixed with adrenaline=lots of scuffles. Don’t make it a bigger deal than it was.

  • that’s called over-rated lol.
    cp3 is a good PG but no the best not even close…
    theres a lot of great PGs today and better than cp3.

  • So. I could care less about the clippers! Wes was a Laker and his perspective/insight is relevant, and in this case, spot on.

  • what is Jordan good at? besides dunking?
    blake is decent but not the best either.

  • I wish Byron was stuck in Showtime. Riley had the good sense to cut the minutes of Kareem as he slowed down. Kareem’s farewell tour saw him play only 22 MPG, the lowest of his career. Riley also reduced KAJ’S role as he only took 9 shots per game, another lowest total of his career.

  • Scott would let the kids run more if he were truly stuck in Showtime. This mess we getting is ridiculous.

  • Well let’s see. He is the second best rebounder in the NBA. 3rd best shot blocker in the NBA. Sets one of if not the best screen in the NBA. As for Blake, he is one of the best players in the league.

  • But when you’re not a talented player you really have no room to make those sorts of comments.

  • Smh. They have to do something cause all these PF’s are a logjam. They need a backup PG and a C. I want them to trade for Jarrett Jack. He is a good player and would be a nice veteran presence.

  • Yeah, maybe they are. He always said he wanted to be a Laker for the rest of his career, but these kinds of years wear on any player.

  • Nah, a pro is a pro, period. There’s only about 400 men on earth in the NBA right now. 400 out of millions who want in. Wes is a veteran of that grouping. He may not be the best but he’s one of the 400, so he has yhe right to voice what he’s seen on the job.
