The Lakers are off to a hot start and second-year point guard D’Angelo Russell is playing well, but can’t seem to shake the label of a “snitch.”
As has been reported ad nauseam, Russell was caught up in drama last season when he filmed teammate Nick Young revealing that he was cheating on his then girlfriend Iggy Azalea. The incident doesn’t seem to be much of an issue in the Lakers locker room these days, but Russell has unfortunately developed a reputation as a “snitch” around the League.
In Sacramento on Thursday night, the point guard was making his way out of the locker room towards the court when a fan held a sign that said “D’Angelo Leaked Hillary [Clinton’s] E-Mail.” Upon seeing the sign, Russell told the fan to, “suck my d*ck.”
Russell got the last laugh when went out and dropped 17 points to lead the Lakers to a 101-91 win.
