Nick Young is trying to get Lakers teammate Kobe Bryant to return to the court as soon as possible.
There's one good way to do that -- put him down.
"I've been talking trash to him a little bit to get out there," Young said. "I'm just waiting for him to get out there so I can go at him, you know, stop dodging me."
Young may be motivational, but he's not delusional.
"I can talk trash now because he can't do nothing right now," Young said of Bryant, who is recovering for a torn Achilles' tendon.
Bryant did some light jogging on the court and some shooting Wednesday. And of course he fired back at Young behind closed doors.
