According to a report from ESPN's Baxter Holmes, The Los Angeles Lakers are investigating sexual harassment allegations against two of their players. The incident involved Nick Young and Jordan Clarkson, and took place in Hollywood on Sunday evening.
Alexis Jones and her 68-year-old mother were the two women involved, and the young Lakers couldn't have possibly picked a worse target for their offensive remarks. Jones is an author and activist who is hired for speaking engagements specifically to prevent athletes from behaving towards women in this way.
Jones posted some photos of Young and Clarkson to her Instagram page, along with her recap of what transpired.
A Lakers spokesman reached out to Jones early Monday morning, and head coach Byron Scott was made aware of what occurred before he addressed it with his two players.
The team also discussed the possibility of having Jones come speak on the topic, and also offered to have her talk with Young and Clarkson directly. While nothing has been finalized, she seems satisfied by the way the team has handled the unfortunate situation thus far.
"I've been inspired by how the Lakers have responded," she said.
