LAKERS D’ANGELO RUSSELL WISHES NICK YOUNG VIDEO NEVER SURFACED

LAKERS D’ANGELO RUSSELL WISHES NICK YOUNG VIDEO NEVER SURFACED

Los Angeles Lakers teammates D’Angelo Russell and Nick Young addressed the media Wednesday evening after a Tuesday report from ESPN.com’s Baxter Holmes and Marc Stein put the two purple and gold players at the center of a videotaping controversy.

Holmes and Stein reported that “trust in Russell is eroding after a video surfaced in the past week that shows Russell recording a private conversation” in which the rookie asked Young if he had been with women other than his fiancee, rapper Iggy Azalea.

“I am sick,” Russell said, according to The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski. “I am sorry about recording the video. I can’t repeat myself enough on that: I am sorry I recorded that video. I feel horrible. I wish this never happened.”

The big question now is whether Russell and the rest of his teammates can patch up their relationships as the season comes to a close. Holmes and Stein cited a source who said Russell’s teammates are handling the situation “by isolating him,” and the tension could wind up complicating the Lakers’ future.
