So... it has been a very interesting 24 hours for D'Angelo Russell, to say the least. Last week, a video showing Nick Young openly talking about cheating on fiancée Iggy Azalea surfaced and when it was revealed that Russell was the one who recorded their conversation, all hell broke loose. While a Lakers insider claims that the clip was "a prank gone wrong," the rookie's teammates don't seem to be laughing.
It is reported that Lakers players have isolated Russell over the leaked video while everyone from Stephen A. Smith to Arizona Cardinals safety Tyrann Mathieu have blasted the 20-year-old for his actions.
Over the last couple of hours, D'Angelo has made an effort to get back into his team's good graces. According to Mike Bresnahan of the Los Angeles Times, Young has accepted Russell's apology. Both guys will reportedly talk to the media before tonight's home game against the Miami Heat. Stay tuned.
