The NBA regular season is nearing an end, but it’s not too late for one of the weirdest storylines of the year, as proved by the drama currently going on inside the Los Angeles Lakers locker room.
News broke this week that several Lakers players were freezing out rookie guard D’Angelo Russell as a result of his role in a video that showed teammate Nick Young admitting to cheating on his fiancée, Iggy Azalea. Russell reportedly secretly videotaped Young as he made the admission and then somehow, some way allowed the video to circulate online, creating a total mess in Los Angeles.
As you’d imagine, the bizarre story was met with all kinds of reactions and takes from those around the sports world, and the Internet had itself a good time responding to the news. Not surprisingly, Russell took the brunt of the heat and will likely have to deal with memes calling him a snitch for quite some time.
Thankfully, the Internet has gotten much more creative than just slapping a Crying Jordan over Russell’s face this time around. Who would have thought that D’Angelo Russell and Swaggy P would be the duo the world needed to make Michael Jordan stop crying?
