Annnnd just when you think it's unnecessary to keep telling kids to keep their eye on the ball, a 21 year old professional athlete makes an ass out of himself by failing at something he was undoubtedly instructed to do the first time he ever played catch. I think Luke Walton will be able to get over one ridiculously lost possession - even in a game his team lost by two points - quicker than D'Angelo Russell's former tee-ball coach will get over the fact that none of his fundamental teachings stuck with his most accomplished player.
In all seriousness, I was getting a little bothered by the lack of laughs at D'Angelo Russell's expense this year. It's not that I was rooting against his development as much as I was hoping to see continued, hilarious signs of immaturity. So yeah, it was a little disappointing watching him turn into a promising young player that learned from his mistakes. That is, until he tripped over a ball while booting it out of bounds without a single defender within 20 feet of him. That's the lowlight I needed to restore my faith in a young point guard's propensity for the patently absurd, and the best part is that it didn't even cost his teammate a fiancee this time!
