What’s your best memory of Nick (Young) on the court in high school? Andre Chevalier: We played a Chinese team that came over on their international tour in an exhibition game and they had a 7-foot-2 dude on their team. Nick found a way to dunk on this guy so badly that the game had to stop because people in the stands got so excited that they jumped out of the stands and ran onto the floor going crazy. We literally had to stop the game. It was a crazy dunk. High School Sports
"I think a lot of people expect him to play at that level and that might not be realistic," Lakers coach Byron Scott said. "I think he’s a very good basketball player, but the numbers he was putting up at that particular time were All-Star type numbers. … That’s kind of hard to say if he can get back to that level or not, but again, he can be a very good basketball player in this league for a long time."

Mark Medina: Nick Young: "Very disappointed I didn’t get out there. But that’s the year it's been." Added that he thinks his ankle feels fine Twitter @MarkG_Medina
Safe to say Nick Young had some fury to unleash against his former team. But three weeks after the Lakers sixth man declared, “I hate the Wizards,” coach Byron Scott said Young will be unavailable to play Tuesday night, sidelined by a sprained right ankle suffered in Monday’s practice. For a Lakers team that has been beaten down by injuries, most recently and notably Kobe Bryant’s torn rotator cuff, it’s just another blow. “It’s one of those things,” Scott said, “one guy gets down, there seems to be a snowball effect and it just keeps happening. Just got to keep trying to plug guys in and see what happens.” Orange County Register
