D’angelo Russell Is Trying To Destroy the Lakers in True Millennial Fashion

According to ESPN, there is dissension among the ranks of the Los Angeles Lakers. Not only are they losing their mega- star, captain and work dad, which is probably the best thing that can happen for the squad over the last 5 years, but now any possible kinmenship has been pissed on by D’Angelo Russell. Recently, footage of Nick Young talking about cheating on his fiancé Iggy Azalea surfaced, and as the plot thickened, it turned out that the diabolical whistleblower was none other than D’Angelo Russell. For reasons unknown (lol), D’Angelo pulled the type of shit that you’d expect to see in a Tyler Perry movie. Maybe he wants Iggy. Maybe he’s mad because…

Asked after the game to access his performance, Vino had this to say, “My rhythm is completely out of sync. But this is a start, and I guess a start is good.” Laker haters, enjoy your night, Laker fans, we…

Lakers Swept Bringing Sad Season to End

LOS ANGELES, CA – I’m a Laker fan. I don’t care if you aren’t. I don’t care who your team is. I don’t and won’t waste my  time hating on them. They aren’t worth my emotion, because I am a Laker fan.
