D’Angelo Russell is facing the noise after he took it upon himself to secretly record Nick Young admitting to cheating on Iggy Azalea. The video was subsequently leaked resulting in Russel’s team isolating him and he says he’s hated everywhere he goes. He was even booed by fans at the Lakers vs Heat game on Wednesday night. During Kobe’s post game interview he gave the rookie some advice.
Kobe says the incident is “unfortunate” and “tough”. Kobe says there’s nothing Russell can do outside of the countless apologies but continue to perform and just play.
Sidenote: Kobe would know; he did snitch on Shaquille O’Neal when they were teammates. Luckily for him social media wasn’t heavy during that time.
