Early last week the lakers suffered the largest lost in Lakers history losing by 48 points. Later that week we found out what contributed to that lose. Laker rookie guard Russell recorded Nick Young admitting that he cheats on his now fiance and the recording got out. Russell did not leak the recording but he was the one who recorded it. This caused a riff between Russell and his teammates. Nick Young has now forgave Russell for what he did now he can only hope to regain the trust of his teammates.

Honestly, I think that Russell is very childish and immature for not only posting the video but recording it as well. Its hard to find reason behind the actions of the 19/20 year old. His own teammate trusted him with private information the he entrusted Russell to not share. And to see all of this go down in the media lets us know that this was definitely a planned attack on his own teammate. Why? Who cares. But Russell deserves everything that comes his way. I smell a trade coming.

You have to consider the fact that Russell really can't have NOT known how the recording got out. It was on his phone. Imagine any video you record on your phone. Can you honestly tell me that you wouldn't know how it could wind up online or posted somewhere? Either you would have had to send it to someone or else you'd have allowed your phone to be in the possession of someone else. It really can't be that complex. Either way, a disgrace to the Lakers, as this entire season has been.
