D’Angelo Russell says he’s ready to move on from the infamous crime against bromanity back in March — but tells TMZ Sports the ball is ultimately in Nick Young’s court. We got the Lakers #2 pick out in Kentucky this weekend — and asked him straight up if he and Swaggy P will be cool next season … after shooting that video that nearly cost Nick his fiancee. “I don’t know,” Russell admitted … “Only time will tell, right?”
Storyline: D'Angelo Russell Situation
He appeared on ESPN’s ‘The Jump’ and said that during the whole Nick Young-D’Angelo Russell scandal there wasn’t much he could do. “I mean from a coach’s standpoint you kind of sit back and hopefully let this thing heal itself. You just hope time will allow that to happen. At the beginning obviously it’s going to be a strenuous situation because you have this one guy over here and everybody in the locker room looking at him like you did everybody wrong. So it’s going to take time to heal that. The one thing I couldn’t do was try to make sure I brought those guys together because if they don’t want to come together, they’re not coming together. No matter what you can do as a coach. Time just has to heal it. I think a lot of our guys on (the team) after a month or so they realized the guy is 20 years old and there’s not one guy in that locker room that hasn’t made a mistake when they’re 20.
World Peace joined The Jump with Rachel Nichols on Tuesday to discuss this past season with the Lakers and the hiring of Luke Walton. Nichols asked World Peace about the Russell-Young drama, and at first, World Peace underplayed the ordeal, saying it was a “little issue” and they just have the “weather the storm.” Nichols asked World Peace to elaborate. Was the Lakers locker room really that bad? World Peace said: “It wasn’t like that. It wasn’t that bad … I can’t say exactly like what it was … We gave him a little talk, because nowadays, it’s like the young players that’s coming into sports, they’re so immature these days. They make a lot of mistakes. So, you have to always be there to pick them up.”
