dangelo russell nick young

Sports analysts and former pro players are weighing in on the D’Angelo Russell scandal.

The 20-year-old LA Lakers guard secretly recorded a private conversation with teammate Nick Young in a hotel room.

Young, unaware that he was being recorded, eagerly recounted his adventures with a 19-year-old groupie. Young is engaged to be married to wannabe rapper Iggy Azalea.

The video found its way onto a gossip blog, and from there it was picked up by ESPN and other sports outlets.

After the video went viral, Russell was shunned by his Lakers teammates and booed lustily by Lakers fans during Wednesday’s home loss against the Miami Heat.

Many former professional players are shocked that Russell broke the cardinal rule of the locker room and team hotel: what happens there, stays there.

“There are levels to the rules,” said SportsNation co-host Marcellus Wiley, who played in the NFL for 10 seasons. “The violations start at pillow talk, and that happens in every single locker room. Guys are talking amongst guys, and someone goes home and tells their significant other, and that turns to gossip, and someone else hears about it from the outside and it comes back into the locker room. That’s a misdemeanor, because it happens so often. But what D’Angelo did was felonious. This is the worst example I’ve ever seen. This is damning.” Source

The Lakers are investigating how the video was leaked from Russell’s phone.

    Damn, D…….they tryna throw the book at you!!

  • Amilia A Lee

    D’Angelo was dumb for recording it but Nick was dumber for ADMITTING it. A lot of cheaters don’t even get caught. They TELL ON THEMSELVES. Both of them need to have a seat in the corner with foil hats on..

  • SameoleJ

    I think is innocent in the sense that he was chilling and talking in confidence with his “friend” and teammate, but I am sure he learned a valuable lesson from this. The cheating part, Nick was not so innocent. Russ, was flat out wrong!!

  • Di Ana

    I mean, the person to blame here is Nick. He shouldn’t have never cheated and this wouldn’t have happened.

  • BKLYNS MAMA

    Why I low key think Nick put DAneglo up to it….To get out of his relationship with Iggy the Great female rapper… You would really think D knows better #IJS

  • AnonymousRose

    only biche Niqqas do this….. A real man would name throw shade on another man game, NEVER… that’s their code….

  • Yoni

    Oh he’s going to do life! Watch.

  • It’s Taurus Season

    Correct. It was a felony when it was done to @Whang too.

  • LeBrick James

    Its to the point now that if you ever tell anybody anything “secret” or very revealing, you gotta check to make sure they dont have a phone recording stuff they can use against you… because your friend today might not be your friend tomorrow.

    Crazy world we live in now, with this age of social media.

  • AnonymousRose

    Men are known to get caught…chile they Fail at cheating…

  • It’s Taurus Season

    WHERRRRRRRRRRRE Is @NakeyaJ to give us Iggy boss Tip logic-isms?

    *cries*

  • It’s Taurus Season

    They so damn stupid. Like really.

  • SameoleJ

    Might not be in prison, but doing life by the homies never trusting you is much worse!! In two seconds he will go from a Snitch to a Bee-otch!!

  • Yoni

    DIDN’T I SAY just LAST WEEK in regards to the OTHER incident that Nick is caught up in, that THEY (da’ man) is out to get these YOUNG (no pun), RICH, educated as well as uneducated BLK MEN? Didn’t I say that.

    Now what I want to know is…..did they consider a felony charge against that one HOE that was fuggin that old basketball manager? Remember her/them. Her name started with a V. He was some owner. The names escape me right now. Anywho, said alladat to say, did they charge HER with a felony?

  • Yoni

    What happened to Whang?

  • SameoleJ

    This one was too trusting, cause Iggy ain’t know shiat……or did she suspect and set him with D’Angelo’s help?

  • It’s Taurus Season

    V. Stiviano and the old owner of the Clippers… Sterling

  • Yoni

    Them.

  • Put some Respeck on B.Sweet

    2 posts in a row… okay.

  • It’s Taurus Season

    He knew he was being recorded. So no. No charge

  • Yoni

    ….and be BROKE because ppl can be petty like that and will blackball his ass from the “sports” arena. LOL

  • MookieFly

    Real interesting to see who defends who in this situation. Some yall out here flat out telling on yourself just like Nick

  • SameoleJ

    Wait…..did Iggy just pull a Khelani (without the suicide attempt)? Got dumbAzz D’Angelo to set his teammate up, so that she can now be the poor, cheated on fiance, who was so in love and eagerly planning her wedding, only to have her dreams of a happily ever after shattered? Let me find out and how much she pay you D?

  • Yoni

    Everytime?

  • LeBrick James

    It’s a good feeling to just be “clean” in your relationship and know that nobody out there has anything they can try to pull out and use against you.

    That cheating-and-hiding stuff is for the birds.

  • SameoleJ

    Huhn? How? I think we all agree that the cheating was dead wrong, the focus is that he was trusting dude and this was the outcome. Two wrongs don’t make either one of them right.

  • SameoleJ

    This is true and if you gonna do dirt, have the decency to leave me alone, instead of having me out here looking dumb!!

  • It’s Taurus Season

    She was employed by him as his archivist. That was her job. So yes. Everytime.

  • Put some Respeck on B.Sweet

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    I guarantee some bird he was messing with got in his phone and sent this to that blog. Oh, well, you’ll be smarter next time.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    (most) Basketball players cheat. The end. That really shouldn’t be surprising to anyone and Nick is like 25 sooo uh yeah.

    Now, D’Angelo Russel is a hater for real. There are some other words I want to type but I hear they are logging key strokes around here. You really have to be a MITCH to record a dude talking about cheating (on his GF) AND leak it. Smh, a straight cornball.

  • It’s Taurus Season

  • jussaying

    where did the crime take place? a lot of states allow you to record conversations as long as one party (typically the recorder) consents for it to happen. some states require at least two party consent.

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    She was so shocked. The bird was fine.. The camera man came and got the bird off her shoulder because he was not budging lol

  • Dakota H

    He only sorry because of all the backlash. The whole team gave him hell they said on ESPN. Im not condoning cheating but what happen to the bro code lol. If he wanted to do something he should have sent Iggy the video privately instead he went public with it and sh** went viral. But Iggy did thank D’Angelo but he looking like a pu**y boy in front of the entire world. Doing sh** like this going to make him have no friends especially male friends but he might snitch on his female friends too lol

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    3 callers ahead you Jimmy ????

  • That’s Interesting

    He must have a crush on Nick Young who desperately needs to grow up. He’s a 30 year old man. I’m not sure why he’s hanging with a 20 year old boy like that or still sleeping with teens.

  • AnonymousRose

    Girl what , just Retardical

  • Ms. Jackson

    ….i dont wish this drama on no one, but…im wondering. Did Iggy think that she was an exception to the rule since she is a white chick and ddint have to worry about getting cheated on? WE all know how lots of our men cheat on us with non melanin chicks. Did she think she was safe cause she is white and (because in her mind, our men only want white chicks anyway after they get that big check) … but, the reality is…he cheated..i guess it doesnt matter if ole girl who he laid up with is white or black. N*&^^%s aint shit but hoes n tricks.

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    Now now :hug:

  • TheRealLee

    Allegedly Minaj release this. The recorder committed a crime and so is the one that released it. If it’s not prosecutable in criminal and even civil court, then how is it that 50 lost his case as well as in the Erin Andrews (the stalker) and Hulk Hogan (Gawker) situation. She needs to be held accountable too. This is something that can be dismissed because all the players in this are weak minded people. But you can’t dismiss it since it has affected the locker room and the LA Laker organization and in the end, either Nick or Russell will have to go. Most likely Nick who is not that great of a player. He might not get picked up by another team and there goes his career and Iggy will move on to an active baller making big money.

  • bemetoo

    Well in most states recording and individual without permission is invasion of privacy IF THE PARTY THAT’S RECORDING ISN’T APART OF THE CONVERSATION OR ACT

  • Renee Bee

    Wow. Interesting point. But the big question is if Izzy has enough brain power to conduct a scheme of this magnitude. I doubt it. Poor lil think think couldn’t save her rap career. ?

  • GubmentCheeze

    D’Angelo Russell is a little boy. I give him props for owning up to the ish in the interview yesterday but he implied that he did not know how the tape got leaked. I honestly think that he sent it to one of his purseholders and they sent it out. Yes Nick was wrong for cheating but that’s HIS business and not the world’s business. People are saying they expect more from a 20 year old but how? Most players are cro-magnon men all they can do is dribble a ball and spread they legs….

  • Afiya

    I love yall too!! Thanks.

  • Ceezus

    Exactly!! Cheating is wrong but the bigger issue is recording someone w/o their knowledge is ILLEGAL.

    exactly.1 Everyone trying to blame Russell. Nick cheated and got caught. He has no one to blame but himself.

  • Amel

    No, apparently Nick is begging Iggy to work things out.

  • Queen B

    Yea yea its bigger shît to worry about oh well

  • KB

    The ultimate question I have is this, what was Mr. Russell’s intent when he recorded the conversation?
    I personally don’t know of anyone male or female who unbeknownst to the other party, records a conversation without the sole purpose of incriminating the other party. Oh, well this is going to be interesting as it plays out.
