L.A.’s own Nick Young played for the Clips in 2011. Now he’s a Laker. The rivalry? “You can feel it in the air …”
“It most definitely is (a rivalry),” Nick Young said at his introductory Lakers presser on Friday. “You can feel it in the air. People are saying the Clippers are the better team now because they’re loading up. You never know until you get on that hardwood. You see, the Clippers went out in the first round too last year. So, it’s still a fight.”
Young was on the Clippers two seasons ago, in Chris Paul’s first year in L.A.

So, you never know.
