Kendall Marshall On Nick Young: ‘He Saves Us A Lot Of The Time’

Once the Los Angeles Lakers signed journeyman Nick Young in the off-season, it was uncertain what the Lakers were getting with a player that had bounced around quite a bit over the last three years.

Fortunately, signing Young has paid off with the team’s leading scorer having arguably the best season of his career. Young did average more points per game (17.4) during the 2010-11 NBA season with the Washington Wizards, but has been a key contributor to this team while Kobe Bryant has been out.

Young’s impact on the team has not gone unnoticed by his teammates, with newcomer Kendall Marshall saying that he bailed the team out on more than one occasion this season according to Bill Oram of the OC Register:

With Young leading the Lakers in scoring at 17.1 points per game, the veteran guard will be a legitimate candidate for Sixth Man of the Year. Although there’s still 40 games left to be played this season, Young has cemented himself as a valuable asset for the Lakers and will likely continue to be the team’s go-to guy with Bryant on the shelf.

    Nick Young is the man.Best Sixth Man in the NBA.Potential super scorer reminds me of a old school player Dale Ellis major scorer.

  • LakersHeatBeef

    I like what Jordan Hill said when Young was asked about playing Kobe’s role… “Kobe gets assist, rebounds and plays D” LOL

    Wonder why players who have gone to play alongside kobe has gotten better and has publicly talked about Kobe’s positive effect on their game. And yet a lot of these so called “pundits” have labeled him as hard-to-play with, no-one-wants-to-play individual.

      When you play with the best, it brings the best out of you. Pundits don’t play.

        And yet, listening to those same players giving credit to Kobe for his advice on making them better apparently has no affect on your opinion.

        • e3bonz

          That doesn’t make any sense Dragon7….

          • Dragon7s

            If I misunderstood your comment then I apologize.
            What I understood you to say was that it was only because they played with Kobe (the best) that made them better not because they received advice from him.
            I took your “Pundits don’t play” to mean that the pundits were serious and knew what they were talking about.
            Having reread it, I can see what you meant now.
