D’Angelo Russell is now apologizing for secretly recording his teammate Nick Young. The two Lakers players have been caught up in a bit of drama since a video surfaced that shows Young talking about cheating on his fiancee, Iggy Azalea. The video, taped by Russell, immediately went viral and had people questioning his "man code." Never mind the fact that Young was bragging about cheating.

Before last night’s game, Russell responded to the drama.

“I feel as sick as possible,” Russell said. “I wish I could make things better right away, but I can’t.”

But he still doesn’t know how the video got out.

“That’s the two-and-two I’m trying to put together, me and my team,” Russell said. “I have no clue how that got out.


“I know if I’ve lost anybody’s trust, I’m going to work my tail off to gain it back, because that’s something you need for a winning team,” Russell continued. “You need everybody to trust each other. You need the first guy to trust the 15th guy, and that’s my intentions.”

After the game, Young also commented on the video, sort of. 

“I don’t want to get into my personal life right now,” Young said. “I think it’s best me and D’Angelo handle the situation we have in a private manner, outside the media. I think it’s something we really do need to sit down and talk about. That’s about it. What happened is what happened. We’ve got to work on it.”


Maybe they’ll hug it out and try to win some games.
