Nick Young recently suffered a torn ligament in his thumb that will keep him sidelined for 8 weeks. Young says that him guarding Kobe Bryant lead to the thumb injury and that Kobe is just to strong for him. Young posted a picture of him on Instagram with the hashtag #ThisIsWhatHappenWhenYouGuardKobe. Well, the bright side of this whole thing is, Nick Young knows how to guard Kobe differently this time; we hope:
Kobe on Swaggy P’s defense:
#Lakers SF Nick Young says guarding Kobe Bryant lead to thumb injury. Kobe:
"My body is made of steel, that's why." Don't reach Swaggy P.
