D’Angelo Russell involved in controversy involving Nick Young

The Los Angeles Lakers do not need another scandal, but that’s exactly what’s happening right now. Rookie point guard D’Angelo Russell found himself in a bit of trouble with his teammates after a video he recorded of teammate Nick Young was leaked to a gossip website.

In the video, Young, admits to cheating on girlfriend, Iggy Azalea with a 19 year old at a club.

The video was tweeted by gossip site, Fameolous and has gotten quite a bit of attention. It’s not known how the site got the video from Russell, yet.


Sources say Russell is being shunned by teammates since the video leaked. A divided locker room is the last thing the Lakers need this season and it’s hard to say how they’ll handle these off-the-court actions. Russell was picked No. 2 overall by the Lakers in the 2015 NBA Draft.

Nothing has been said on the matter by Russell, Young or the Lakers at this point.
