Nick Young, Training Like Kobe

When Laker fans think of Swaggy-P,  Nick Young, they think of a player who is enthusiastic on the floor.  They also think of a guy who likes to take a lot of shots and not always show the greatest commitment to defense. When Laker fans think of Kobe Bryant, think of a superstar.  He’s the one superstar who trains like a 12th man trying to get a starting gig.  Nick Young is ready to be Kobe Bryant’s Robin, and now, he’s training like it.

It looks like Kobe Bryant’s influence is rubbing off on Nick Young.

Nick Young showed up at the gym today.

He also revealed to twitter how many shots were going up.

A thousand shots is still short of Kobe Bryant’s legendary two-thousand makes for a shooting drill.  Still, its August.  There’s still over two months until training camp starts.  Nick Young has a huge head start.
