D’Angelo Russell wants to stop Ben Simmons from making the same mistakes he did.
D'Angelo Russell got himself, and Nick Young, in a whole lot of trouble last season when the rookie decided it would be a fun prank to secretly record Young talking about picking up girls at the club and post it to social media.
The incident led to Young and Iggy Azalea breaking off their engagement and to the Lakers point guard learning an important lesson about information sharing in the modern age. He is passing that along to Ben Simmons ahead of the draft in a funny new Foot Locker commercial.
Simmons is expected to be one of the first two picks in Thursday’s draft and holds the No. 2 spot on SI.com’s latest Big Board
