NBA prospect D'Angelo Russell has an awful golf swing

Wednesday May 27th, 2015

D'Angelo Russell is expected to be a top five lottery pick, according to Sports Illustrated's latest mock draft.

Wherever Russell ends up, he should try to get in touch with a golf pro as soon as possible, because his swing needs a lot of work.

Former Xavier and Maryland player Dez Wells posted video of Russell's hacks on Instagram over the weekend.

The Ohio State star deserves some leeway for his poor performance, as that club is clearly not fitted for a man of his size, but even if he had the finest custom equipment, that swing does not look like it is sending the ball anywhere near the hole.


Draft watchers are still gathering info on Kristaps Porzingis's short game.
