D'Angelo Russell Took A Video Of Swaggy P Admitting To Cheating On Iggy Azalea, So Now The Rest Of The Lakers Won't Talk To Him
LakersNation- Unfortunately, a video recently surfaced in the past week where a private conversation between D’Angelo Russell and Nick Young was recorded. According to Baxter Holmes and Marc Stein of ESPN, there are now trust issues between Russell and some of his teammates:
Sources told ESPN.com that trust in Russell from some teammates is eroding after a video surfaced in the past week that shows the 20-year-old former Ohio State standout and No. 2 overall pick from the 2015 draft recording a private conversation between Russell and teammate Nick Young in which Young does not appear to realize he’s being taped.
As a result of the video surfacing, some of Russell’s teammates have ‘isolated’ him according to ESPN:
At a recent breakfast meeting, one source said, no Laker would sit with Russell at his table. The source added that, in another instance, Russell came into the locker room and sat next to guard Lou Williams, who got up and walked away.
You see, this is why I love the NBA. I guess the basketball is pretty good too, but I watch the NBA the same way I watch 'Friday Night Lights'. Sure, the sport scenes are cool, but what I really need to see is teenagers (and people that act like teenagers) try - and inevitably fail - to maintain relationships. First we had Kyrie Irving's girlfriend cheating and subsequently attempting suicide on Instagram, and now we have this situation here. The #2 overall draft pick - whose finally getting a chance to play after being sheltered all season - decides to post a video of his enigmatic teammate unknowingly admitting to the world that he cheated on his pop star girlfriend with a 19 year old.
That's almost too unbelievable not to be scripted. If this happened in Dillon, Texas it would test my ability to suspend disbelief, and this is an actual story that is taking place in PROFESSIONAL sports. This story would make more sense if D'Angelo Russell sat next to Lou Williams in the lunch room and he got up and walked away, yet it's happening in an NBA locker room. No wonder all these players are only going to college for one year. Other than the level of basketball being played, going from high school to the pros is almost a flawless transition. Why waste time in college becoming an actual adult when you can just continue to be a child in the NBA? That's what gets the people going anyway. If the league really wanted the Lakers to be relevant again they would stop worrying about draft picks and give them their own reality show. How could a show that features Swaggy P as the second most immature person in the room possibly fail? Fuck 'Basketball Wives LA', give me 'Basketball Boyfriends LA'. Throw that shit on HBO and the Lakers are sure to become must watch television again. If men watch sports because they are the male equivalent of soap operas then why wouldn't dudes tune in to watch the Lakers become 'The Young And The Restless'.
P.S. I need a D'Angelo Russell/Iggy Azalea revenge fuck like I need air to breathe...
P.P.S. No wonder Kobe Bryant has changed his attitude this season. He has no choice but to be a carefree, happy-go-lucky dude. If he was was flipping out over every little thing he used to flip out about this year's Los Angeles Lakers would ave given him a brain aneurysm by December.
