This may be the saddest story of the day…

It appears as though Lakers star Nick Young took his talents to the hardwood at the Lord’s House, and in the process, hit an opposing player with a one-two. Now, according to TMZ Sports, he’s being sued for his violent actions.

Luis Solis has launched a lawsuit against Young claiming that the NBA player became “enraged” after he thought Solis fouled him during a game at the Shepherd of the Hills church in Porter Ranch, CA, on August 18th. Apparently, Nick thought the ref missed the call and, at that point, he flipped out and assaulted Luis. Solis even claims Young’s teammates got involved in the fight.

Solis says he sustained serious injuries and is contemplating filing a police report … but in the meantime, the lawsuit will have to do.

“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”

What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.

“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”

Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
