Nick Young Says Kevin Garnett Yelled At Him During Rookie Season

Veteran guard Nick Young is starting to make an impression in his first year with the Los Angeles Lakers. Young could be making a strong case for Sixth Man of the Year award if he’s able to continue playing consistently well off the bench for the Lakers.

Along with leading the Lakers in scoring so far this season (14.9 ppg) and potentially being a Sixth Man of the Year candidate, Young was also able to sit down with Grantland’s Chris Ryan to talk about a bunch of different topics in a span of about three minutes in their “Tough Calls” segment.

Ryan asked Young five tough, and frankly awkward, questions. Young didn’t disappoint with some interesting and hilarious answers to these off-the-wall questions from Ryan. The topics varied from Chris “Birdman” Andersen’s tattoos to Kevin Garnett telling him he didn’t belong in the NBA in his rookie year, to debating if he’d rather get dunked on by Nate Robinson or shave his eyebrows.

Enjoy!
