Nick Young Suggests Lakers Don’t Get The Same Respect As Other Teams

For the first time this season, Nick Young fouled out of a game. Young picked up his fifth foul with 6:45 left to play in the game when he fouled Alec Burks on a shot attempt. Young check out of the game briefly, but returned with 6:13 left in the game. Less than 30 seconds later, Young was called for his sixth foul while chasing Marvin Williams around a screen.

Young was frustrated after the foul and headed to the locker room briefly before returning to the bench to watch the final minutes of the game. Following the game, Young said that he felt that the Lakers didn’t earn the same respect as the other players in the league in his post-game interview on TWC SportsNet.

“It’s just the respect factor. You know I don’t feel we get the same proper respect that everyone else gets when it comes to certain things out there on the court. It plays a major role. I’m not going to call no names, I’m not going to say it’s the ref’s fault. Just watch the game over and see what happened out there.

“[…] I’ve never fouled out during the real season — and that’s the tough part. When you’re in a groove like that, but we just wasn’t getting no calls tonight.”

Young was instrumental in keeping the Lakers in the game with 13 points in the 4th quarter, and watched as the Lakers tired to close out the game without him on the floor in the final minutes, but a few sloppy turnovers and an offensive rebound/tip dunk put the game on ice.

The Lakers will head home for a four-game home stretch before heading on the road for three. Three of the four games are teams with win totals under 10, so the Lakers will have an opportunity to add some tally marks in the win column.
