“I walked in and saw drawers open, clothes all over the floor. I know I didn’t leave my place like that,” Young said. “Then I looked at the window and it was broken. Glass all over the floor. That’s when I knew someone had gotten in there.”
Jewelry, clothes and luggage were stolen. The good-natured Young also said he was irritated to lose some of his Nike Air Yeezy shoes, valued at several thousand dollars a pair.
“I was just shocked they tried to get 'Swaggy,’” said Young, a favorite of Lakers followers who has given himself the nickname “Swaggy P.”
Young chose to stay the night at a hotel after realizing he had been robbed. He had one minor complaint.
“The police didn’t come until, like 4 or 5 [a.m.] I called them at 2,” Young said.
Young said he was happy the thieves weren’t still in the house when he returned from the Lakers’ 103-94 victory over the Orlando Magic. Young scored 26 points in a rare Lakers victory.
“I think they knew that I had a game that day. I think they scoped it out a little bit,” Young said. “Obviously they knew nobody was in the house and they knew we had a game so they came at the right time.”
