D’Angelo Russell Apologizes For Leaked Video Of Nick Young
You can stay fresh as hell cause the feds watching, but you better keep your mouth closed cause D’Angelo Russell may be taping.
In case you haven’t heard, the NBA rookie and part-time informant secretly videotaped his LA Lakers teammate Nick Young spilling tea on his affairs outside of his engagement to Iggy Azalea. D’Angelo claims it was a prank.
The video mysteriously surfaced on Snapchat a few months ago and now the ish has hit the fan.
D’Angelo, who is reportedly being treated like he has a case of incurable cooties by his teammate, has issued a public apology for his actions.
In a news conference Russell told the media, “I feel as sick as possible. Been asked 110 times, and my answer and feeling stay same.”
After he was booed by the home crowd during their game on Wednesday night, he said, “I can’t really show my face anywhere without people hating me right now. I don’t know. I try to handle it the right way and remember why I’m here, which is to play basketball.”
When asked if he thinks the tape has ruined Nick’s relationship with Iggy, D’Angelo responded:
Honestly, I do. I’ve always been known as a guy that plays around a lot, and he has been, too. To be around somebody that’s similar, with the same similar characteristics, is different.
He’s one of the guys that I’ve always talked to about anything, and I cherished our friendship. For me to have an incident like this come up and put it in jeopardy is not what I was intending to do.
I reached out to [Young], let him know my apologies. I don’t know if they were accepted. I wouldn’t blame him.
Iggy appears to appreciate the intel.
The big question is how does Nick Young feel about being outed?
Well, he kept it cute as he said:
I think it’s best that me and D’Angelo handle the situation we have in a private manner outside the media.
I think it’s something we really do need to sit down and talk about. That’s about it. What happened is what happened. We’ve got to work on it.
What are your thoughts on this situation?
Do you think D’Angelo Russell should pack up his locker and search for a new team?
