From the first moments after the Los Angeles Lakers took him with the No. 2 pick, D’Angelo Russell has been singing the praises of Kobe Bryant. But Kobe is not his only idol, and Russell tweeted out this:
You knew Kobe wasn’t going to let that slide.
It took all of six minutes for Russell to start backpedaling.
Kobe let the rookie off the hook. At least in public.
Shock the world? For the Lakers that would be making the playoffs with this roster.
