To be completely fair, it’s hard to recognize people nowadays with everyone wearing their masks but let’s keep it real – this fan was trolling Nick Young hard. Young took the joke like a champ and laughed it out with the fan.
For those of you who don’t know, Nick Young and Russel aren’t really on the best of terms.
Nick Young was part of the Lakers team that drafted Russell as their second overall pick in 2015. The two guards actually had a strong relationship at first but things quickly turned for the worse after a controversial video leaked during the season. The video, which Russell covertly recorded, had Young admitting to his teammate in confidence that he cheated on his former fiancée, pop-star Iggy Azalea. The rookie claimed that he had no idea how the video got out but the chemistry between the two wasn’t the same after the incident. The two parted ways a few seasons after and their relationship hasn’t been the same.
More recently, Nick Young has gone out in public to claim that Russell was his most annoying teammate in his 11-season career in the NBA.
