Russell, 20, even told Bleacher Report that he used to play as Walton in 2K as a kid. Wait, hold up…he played as Luke Walton?
“I told him I remember playing with him on (NBA) 2K; I used to always play as him. I’m a fan. I’m definitely a fan. Because he was a point forward. I can’t speak on Elgin Baylor and all those guys, but my era, I know he was a point forward.”
Jackson on Instagram: “The new NBA. Brown nosing at its best. To be real Luke Walton didn’t pick Luke Walton on 2k. GTFOH. Smdh. U gonna start Kid u ain’t gotta do all that bruh. Man it’s sad I tell ya. Just be real with others and they will respect that.”
Jackson is known for keeping it 100 percent real, but acusing Russell of “brown-nosing” is a bit of a stretch.
Only one thing is for sure: D’Angelo Russell is very happy with his new head coach.
