Struggling Phoenix Suns rookie Alex Len made his presence felt in Wednesday night's matchup with the Los Angeles Lakers, but not in a good way. 

As Nick Young was on his way to the basket for a layup, Len committed a hard foul that floored the Lakers swingman. Young took exception, immediately popping up and going after anyone in a white jersey:

The result? 

Both Young and Len were ejected—Young for swinging at Suns point guard Goran Dragic and Len for a flagrant-2 foul.

Young was upset after the game, going as far as to call out his teammates for not defending him. Additionally, "Swaggy P" got a little too liberal on social media.
