Watch: Does Nick Young Plan on Bringing Colin Kaepernick's Stance to the NBA?

Here's what the Lakers forward had to say about it.

Published September 5, 2016

It took less than a week, since Colin Kaepernick sat during the national anthem as a stance against violence and race matters in America, for his silent protest to spread.

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane took the same stance as the San Francisco 49ers QB before his own preseason game Thursday night.

And now, Kaepernick's stance might be making its way to the NBA.

When stopped by TMZ Sports cameras during this long weekend, Los Angeles Lakers forward Nick Young said he "would do the same thing," when asked about Kaepernick's silent protest during the national anthem.

Take a look.

Does that mean that Young will be the first player to bring Kaepernick's stance to the NBA?

Swaggy P sounds like it could be a possibility.

We could find out October 9, when the Lakers open up their preseason schedule.
