Kobe Bryant likens Lakers teammate to Django Unchained

The Lakers had a nightmare on the court last night, losing in humiliating fashion to their city rivals the Clippers 142-94.

And Kobe Bryant wasn't too impressed with their players fashion choices either with Nick Young coming in for some criticism from the injured star.

Young turned up to the Staples Center in a fairly flamboyant blue suit and white shirt combo but it wasn't long before before Kobe came down on him - likening the 2007 draft pick to Jamie Foxx's character in the movie 'Django Unchained'.

Bryant posted a comparison picture to his official Instagram page along with the following jibe:

"#SwaggyUnchained @jchill27 on the edit @swaggyp1 as Django #pregame."

And in fairness to the black mamba, he has a point with the outfits surprisingly similar.

With the NBA having earlier issued a statement urging players to adhere to the dress code rules currently in place, Young had only been trying to look sharp ahead of last night's contest but it looks like we can now christen 'Swaggy P'  #SwaggyUnchained thanks to the spot from Kobe.

At least Bryant is keeping himself entertained while continuing with rehabilitation.
