It all started when Russell snapchatted Young talking about his affairs. Twitter immediately blew up. Although Young is the one who cheated on Iggy, Russell caught the heat because he ratted on his teammate. Of course this affected his personal life but it also led to his teammates not passing him the ball during games. The riff in the locker room even caused Lakers head coach Byron Scott to bench Russell because “he’s not here with us, mentally.”
Despite Young’s relationship with Iggy falling apart and him getting his ex-girlfriend pregnant, it looks like his relationship with Russell is finally on the mend.
“We’re teammates. It’s been so long, so it’s kind of old. We’ll be able to work it out. We’ve already been working it out. It is what it is. I can’t be mad forever,” Young told the Los Angeles Daily News.
Young even laughed at the Footlocker commercial Russell did that poked fun at the situation.
“I need my commercial now,” Young said, laughing. “I’ll explain what happened to my life.”
Hopefully the chemistry will improve amongst the Lakers teammates, as this will be first time in 20 years without Kobe Bryant to keep things in order.
