After last night’s skirmish in Phoenix, Nick Young added fuel to the fire after the game when he spoke of his anger that none of his teammates rushed to his aid. Much of the blame was placed on Kendall Marshall, who made no attempt before, during, or after the scuffle to assist his teammates.
However, by the same regard, the short-handed Lakers couldn’t afford to lose Nick Young, let alone any more of his teammates. Marshall and Jodie Meeks were the sole remaining true guards on the roster after Young’s ejection. Should they have risked ejection themselves to protect Young?
