LA Lakers stars house burgled during game

According to TMZ, police are investigating the apparent burglary of Los Angeles Lakers guard Nick Young's house, which was broken into during a Lakers game that Young was playing in.

Last night Young was on the court against the Orlando Magic and put up an impressive 26 points as the Lakers won 103-94.

But things took a turn for the worse when the two-way forward left the Staples Center arena and returned to his rented home which he noticed had a smashed in window and an unlocked front door - suggesting that the robbers brazenly walked right out of the front of the house.

Swaggy P - as he is better known - seemingly gave credence to the story today. From the Twitter account of LA Lakers beat writer Mike Bresnahan.

"Nick Young confirms his Sherman Oaks home got robbed last night. Almost $100K in value. "I was just shocked they tried to get Swaggy."

TMZ's sources supposedly told them that several expensive items were taken from the 28 year old's crib including Louboutin shoes, jewellery, clothes, Louis Vuitton luggage and more, a hundred grand's worth of swag. 

It is unclear yet if the guard/forward was targeted because he is a Lakers player and they knew he would not be at home, or if it was simply random.

No arrests have yet to be made and it appears that there is no suspects either.

Young is averaging 17 points a game this season, to along with 2.6 rebounds and 1.4 assists. He was in contention for the NBA Sixth Man of the Year Award before an injury sustained last month but he could well still take the title if he plays like he did against the Magic more regularly.
