I Don't Know About You, But I Can't Think Of A Better Combination Than Derek Fisher And D'Angelo Russell
Who's laughing now basketball fans?!? People thought the Lakers royally fucked themselves by waiting too long to fire Byron Scott, and subsequently missing out on hiring guys like Tom Thibodeau and Scott Brooks. HA! Shows what you guys know about team building. The NBA is a player's league. It' about catering to your talent and keeping them happy. Well, there is no more talented player on the Lakers roster than D'Angelo Russell and if there's one thing he thoroughly enjoys it's home wrecking.
He may have started out with accidental snapchat breakups, but if there is a guy out there that can take his sexual misconduct game to the next level it's the head coach that essentially got himself fired by fucking an active player's estranged wife. How are Derek Fisher and D'Angelo Russell not a match made in hoops heaven? The problem with what the Lakers rookie did wasn't that it destroyed a professional locker room from the inside out, it's that there was no precedent for doing so beforehand. If you come to Los Angeles knowing that their coach is an adulterer and their starting point guard is a narc then you come knowing to keep any and all females as far away from the team as possible. Liars, cheaters, and manipulators need jobs too, ya know? Why wouldn't you have them work together? A morally bankrupt lefty point guard learning from a morally bankrupt coach that made his mark in the league as a lefty point guard? That sets the tone in the locker room. It makes sure the players understand each other, and rids them of any false sense of security. The Spurs sacrifice stats for wins, and the Lakers could sacrifice their wives and girlfriends for the collective sexual satisfaction of the team. Sharing is caring. With a combination of Derek Fisher and D'Angelo Russell the Lakers could basically plaster that motto above the entrance to their locker room. At the very least it would put an end to the crying over spilled milk and leaked admissions that turned this Lakers season from a disaster to a disgrace....
