LOS ANGELES – After Los Angeles Lakers point guard D’Angelo Russell posted a video on snapchat featuring teammate Nick Young, who appeared to be completely unaware he was being recorded, admitting to cheating on his Fiancé Iggy Azalea, the NBA announced that D’Angelo Russell will be permanently banned from the NBA for disregarding player privacy and breaking “locker room rules”, and thus forcing the Los Angeles Lakers to waive Russell.
The infamous video (Below)was posted by D’Angelo Russell as his snapchat story. seen by hundreds of thousands of people, including Iggy Azalea herself. Russell is now being shunned by pretty much almost everybody, especially his teammates. “There are levels to the rules,” said SportsNation co-host Marcellus Wiley, who played in the NFL for 10 seasons. “The violations start at pillow talk, and that happens in every single locker room. Guys are talking amongst guys, and someone goes home and tells their significant other, and that turns to gossip, and someone else hears about it from the outside and it comes back into the locker room. That’s a misdemeanor, because it happens so often. But what D’Angelo did was felonious. This is the worst example I’ve ever seen. This is damning.” Watch video:
Because of the video, D’Angelo Russell will join the small list of individuals who have been banned from the NBA, which includes former L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling. NBA commissioner Adam Silver has announced that he will allow the regular season to end, around mid-April, before banning Russell for good. D’Angelo Russell will have no other option except to play professional basketball overseas.
