Nick Young Hits The Ice For LA Kings

Let me just say that I will be a little sad if the Lakers don’t resign Nick Young. I find Swaggy P to be highly entertaining, and he’s a scorer. He could be a key piece to a well rounded roster. Swaggy was at the LA Kings playoff game Tuesday night. He even took to the ice on the Zamboni. Swaggy on ice! Nick’s Lakers teammate Jordan Farmar was also on hand for the game.

Lakers only received second round trade offers for Pau Gasol

Los Angeles Lakers owner Jim Buss was apparently more than okay with trading longtime power forward Pau Gasol, but general manager Mitch Kupchack, not so much.
