Nick Young apparently needs some clarification on the concept of trash talk.
The Los Angeles Lakers guard was miffed after his team’s loss to the Boston Celtics on Friday, leaving the visitor’s locker room at TD Garden in a huff. It wasn’t until after Sunday’s game in New Orleans, which also ended in a Lakers loss, that Young explained his issue.
“I don’t like when people talk trash and then they get the ‘W’ after and they feel like they did something,” Young told ESPN.com’s Baxter Holmes. “I don’t like that feeling.”
Who was talking trash? Celtics forward Jared Sullinger, according to Young.
“Just hitting shots, talking trash, looking at the bench,” Young said. “It made me feel like I was a punk or something. I don’t stand for that.”
Let’s make sure we have this straight. Sullinger talked some smack, hit some shots and then his team beat Young’s team. Not sure about you, but we always thought that’s how it’s supposed to work.
