As Mike Breen, Jeff Van Gundy and Mark Jackson discussed the D’Angelo Russell saga on ABC’s Rockets-Thunder broadcast Sunday, Jackson took a jab at one of his former assistants.
The ex-Warriors head coach said Russell could still make it in the NBA as an assistant, referencing Darren Erman, who was fired by Golden State in 2014 for secretly videotaping Jackson’s talks.
Russell was reportedly isolated by his teammates last week after a video that he recorded of teammate Nick Young leaked. In the video, Young admitted to cheating on his girlfriend Iggy Azalea.
