The act of snitching has got its consequences, regardless of how good your intentions may be. This is a “fact” Lakers star, D’Angelo Russell, can attest to because he is being “blacked” out by his teammates for allegedly snitching on his teammate, Nick “Swaggy P” Young.
D’Angelo Russell allegedly secretly recorded Nick talking about cheating on his fiancee, Iggy Azealia with a 19-year-old woman and attempting to get with Amber Rose. And with this singular act, he has been isolated by his Lakers teammate.
According to ESPN, the emergence of the video has been the major talking point in Lakers dressing room. While the number one suspect behind the video, D’Angelo, is now being treated like a social leper.
At a recent breakfast meeting, one source said, no Laker would sit with Russell at his table. The source added that, in another instance, Russell came into the locker room and sat next to guard Lou Williams, who got up and walked away.
“It’s bad,” A team source told ESPN.com’s Ramona Shelburne. “It’s about as bad as it can get. There were trust issues already. Now there’s no trust.”
D’Angelo’s case is made worse by the fact that it is believed that the video is the reason why Nick Young’s fiancee, Iggy Azalea, postponed their wedding. And fueled this assertion by giving a shout out to D’Angelo.
It’s not certain how long this black out would last but I’m sure D’Angelo is prepared for it. Because he had to see this coming. And the fact some folks connected to the issue are saying he didn’t do it, won’t really help his cause.
