Former second overall pick D’Angelo Russell has not had a good couple days, recently being traded from the blossoming Los Angeles Lakers to the laughing stock of the league (besides the Bulls) Brooklyn Nets. Still, this did not phase Russell, who kept composed and stayed true to his roots during his introductory press conference in Brooklyn. Unfortunately for Brooklyn, his roots include snitching on his teammates. Russell was asked to elaborate on his recent post of him at a late-night work out at the Nets facility. He went on to say that new teammate Caris LeVert was supposed to be there as well but did not show up. Russell is of course well known for snitching on former teammate Nick Young in regards to his faithfulness to then-girlfriend Iggy Azalea.
Not a good start for Russell to say the least. Hopefully he can get back on track, especially given that he has shown a significant amount of talent so far in his young career.
