Nick Young can only laugh at the idea of inviting D’Angelo Russell to his wedding
Former NBA guard Nick Young is getting married soon, so naturally some people want to know if he’s going to invite Golden State Warriors point guard D’Angelo Russell to his wedding.
In typical Nick Young fashion, he just laughed when TMZ asked him if Russell was going to get an invite. Russell and Young, of course, were teammates on the Los Angeles Lakers when Russell filmed Young and a whole saga was made out of it.
By all accounts, Russell is a more mature player on and off the court now. He made his first All-Star team last season with the Brooklyn Nets and got a max contract from the Warriors this past summer.
It doesn’t appear, though, that Young and Russell are back on good terms. It’s doubtful the two will ever be friends again, although these types of beefs do tend to sour as time goes on.
D’Angelo Russell has appeared in 22 games for the Warriors this season. The lefty is averaging 23.2 points, 3.4 rebounds and 6.0 assists while shooting 43.3 percent from the field, 36.3 percent from beyond the arc and 76.7 percent from the free-throw line.
Russell’s name has come up in trade rumors again with the trade deadline approaching. The Warriors have the second-worst record in the NBA and could trade Russell to get some value in return.
