Los Angeles Lakers Fan Creates Petition To Take D’Angelo Russell’s Phone
D’Angelo Russell committed a guy-sin by intentionally/unintentionally releasing a video of teammate Nick Young talking about cheating on his current girlfriend. Poor guy has been trending on Twitter all day Wednesday and shows no signs of stopping.
In what is a down year for the Lakers, if there was something to take the shine off their terrible record or Kobe’s farewell tour, it was definitely this scandal.
Lakers fans took to Change.org to petition the team to permanently take D’Angelo Russell’s phone away. It reads as:
D’Angelo Russell has lost the trust of his teammates after a video surfaced within the past week showing Russell recording a private conversation between him and fellow Laker Nick Young.
In the video, it doesn’t appear as if Young knows he is being recorded.
We ask that the Los Angeles Lakers take D’Angelo Russell’s phone away for the remainder of the 15-16 NBA season.
This will prohibit the following:
- Private Recorded Conversations
Please also consider the 16-17 NBA season as well.
This petition will be delivered to:
- Los Angeles Lakers
- Mitch Kupchak
