Clippers fan complained to Steve Kerr about not playing Nick Young enough
Not everyone was pleased with the Golden State Warriors’ 28-point win against the L.A. Clippers on Monday night, bouncing right back from a loss to the Detroit Pistons at the end of a three-game home stand by cutting their turnovers in half and pushing the lead past any type of hope after the third quarter.
Yet while Warriors head coach Steve Kerr summoned his bench to play out the fourth quarter, one fan wasn’t satisfied with the amount of time LaLa Land crowd-favorite Nick Young saw on the court.
“I paid my money and I want to see Nick Young,” yelled an entitled Clippers fan, according to Anthony Slater of The Athletic. “We want Swaggy.”
Young played only seven minutes, just like his counterpart addition Omri Casspi, which were enough for him to put up three three-point attempts, nailing his last one in a contested jumper from the wing, which touched nothing but bottom with the game already out of reach for the home team.
The crowd at Staples Center had already turned sour by the third quarter, as Stephen Curry received chants of “M-V-P” on the road as he went to the free-throw line.
Young spent his last four seasons in his native Los Angeles as a member of the Lakers and has grown to be one of the most charismatic figures in the City of Angels for his gunning style of offensive play and his on-court celebratory antics.
