VIDEO: Marreese Speights grabs Nick Young around the neck, gets ejected

Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Lakers

I guess Marreese Speights isn’t a fan of swag.

During the fourth quarter of tonight’s Lakers-Warriors game, Nick Young drove the lane and threw down a big dunk. The next trip down, Young tried to replicate the exact same play, except this time, Speights had a different idea.

Speights grabbed Young around the neck and upper chest area so stop him from going up for the shot. In today’s NBA, that’s not tolerated, and so Speights was ejected from the game.

Young, who is usually always calm and collected, got a little fired up after the hard foul from Speights, yet the refs separated the two before anything could escalate.
