D’Angelo Russell Owns Up To His Rookie Mistake – Rest Of Sports Gossips Like High School
March 30, 2016
School Prior to D’Angelo Russell’s prank gone awry, the Los Angeles Lakers had largely avoided any headlines other than Kobe Bryant’s farewell tour. The waters were tranquil in Lakerland.
Consider this a stick of dynamite thrown into the aforementioned waters.
To review, Lakers teammates Nick Young (aka Swaggy P) and Russell were allegedly discussing the finer points of Young’s infidelity to rapper Iggy Azalea.
But Swaggy P wasn’t aware he was being recorded on Russell’s phone.
Long story short, the video somehow leaked, and Russell is learning that hell hath no fury like a bro code broken.

For what it’s worth, Russell addressed the controversy at a press conference and expressed his sincerest apologies.

The lesson here? When you’re discussing your infidelities, always make sure it’s off the record — because apparently a camera phone makes everyone a reporter.
