The Lakers' Nick Young has taken exception with Clippers coach Doc Rivers covering Lakers banners at the Staples Center. 

Coming over to the Clippers this year, Rivers is trying to instill a championship mentality in the franchise which has seen many hapless years.  One move he's made is requesting that Lakers banners hanging in the Staples Center - which both the Clips and Lakers share for home games - be covered up when it's considered a Clippers home game.  

New L.A. Laker swingman, Nick Young, finds this to be a disrespectful move, and thinks his team should talk to Rivers about covering the banners.  Young doesn't believe that Rivers has been around L.A. long enough to start making bold moves like that.  


In what may signify that a coverup always remains worse than the crime, Lakers guard Nick Young considered it “disrespectful” Clippers coach Doc Rivers instructed the organization to feature banners of his players draped over the Lakers’ championship banners and retired jerseys anytime they have a home game at Staples Center.

“We got to talk to Doc,” Young said Sunday at the Lakers’ practice facility in El Segundo. “He can’t have that. We have to do something about that.” [...] 

“That’s a lot of pull ya’ll are giving Doc,” Young said. “He shouldn’t come and have that much pull. He should come and earn his keep.”
