$100k in possessions robbed from Nick Young’s house during Lakers game
Any good feelings from the victory and Young’s performance shifted to the back burner when the Lakers’ second-leading scorer on the season returned to his home following the game.
He arrived to find a window broken and the place burglarized.
“I walked in and saw drawers open, clothes all over the floor. I know I didn’t leave my place like that,” Young said Monday via the Los Angeles Times. “Then I looked at the window and it was broken. Glass all over the floor. That’s when I knew someone had gotten in there.”
“I think they knew that I had a game that day. I think they scoped it out a little bit,” Young said. “Obviously they knew nobody was in the house and they knew we had a game so they came at the right time.”
Among the items no longer in Young’s possession are popular Nike Nike Air Yeezy sneakers.
If there’s a guy in the NBA who can create a lighthearted moment at a time like this, it’s Nick Young, who summed up the situation as only he can.
“I was just shocked they tried to get ‘Swaggy.”
