Lakers Make Horribly Embarrassing Mistake on Team Website Following D’Angelo Russell Trade (PIC)
In sports, things can change rather quickly, so you need to be prepared for the unexpected as teams try to position themselves to get top players in their respective sports.
The Los Angeles Lakers are in the midst of a 4-year funk and decided to swing for the fences on Tuesday by trading away star point guard D’Angelo Russell to the Brooklyn Nets. The move is expected to help them free up enough cap space to get Paul George from the Indiana Pacers.
More than two hours after the trade was announced, the Lakers’ Draft Night promo on their website still looked like this.

The Lakers not only upset a large portion of their fan base by making this trade for Brook Lopez and a draft pick, but they further embarrassed Russell with this graphic that wasn’t updated until a full two hours after he was traded.
