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.
