Lakers forward Nick Young spent all of last season playing in Philadelphia, along with Evan Turner and Lavoy Allen. Andrew Bynum was also there, though he never played in a game. After the Lakers held shoot around at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Tuesday, ahead of their only visit to Indy, Young talked about his former teammates — calling them each “my guy.” “I actually only played with him one time last year and that was in practice,” he said. “He went to work, too. Bynum’s my guy. He’s going to do Bynum, regardless of what anybody says. He’s going to be Bynum everyday.” Pacers.com

But again, we’re not focused on that right now. He’s focusing on getting healthy and continuing to play well.” Los Angeles Daily News
