Watch: D'Angelo Russell shows off unlimited range
Saturday August 8th, 2015

Los Angeles Lakers point guard D’Angelo Russell turned things up a notch with a few trick plays during the NBA rookie photo shoot on Saturday. 

Russell, the Ohio State product taken No. 2 in this year’s draft, first hit a 75-footer from the opposite free throw line.


He followed it up with a half-court shot with his back to the basket.

Then Russell showed his unselfishness with a fancy off-the-knee pass to Lakers second-rounder Anthony Brown. 


Russell wasn’t the only rookie having a little fun at the photo shoot. Knicks pick Kristaps Porzingis hit a deep bomb from behind a curtain and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson of the Nets appeared to spend much of the day dancing
