In what has been a busy start to the offseason, D’Angelo Russell has been just that; busy. From constantly being in the gym to walking the Great Wall in China, Russell almost literally has been everywhere. Most recently, Russell had been filming commercials with fellow Nike Athletes and friends Karl-Anthony Towns, Devin Booker, and Ben Simmons.
The four of them star in this Foot Locker ad below:

It starts off generically, but Russell’s part is what makes this ad great. Russell is able to make light of the Nick Young Snapchat “scandal”, and in doing that, steals the show. Literal laugh out loud material.
Being that Young and Azalea just broke things off, the timing is a little weird with the advertisement. However, it is good to see Russell put past events behind him. Now Russell can set his sights on Summer League and Team USA camp, with Julius Randle and presumptive #FutureLaker Brandon Ingram.
