D’Angelo Russell is coming off a good season with the Los Angeles Lakers, especially in the regular season, but the point guard feels he hasn’t gotten the credit for his great year from the perimeter.
Russell averaged 17.8 points per game, 3 rebounds, 6.2 assists, 46.9% shooting from the field and 39.6% from 3-pointers in the regular season but the playoffs did not see his best performance.
The player Patrick Beverley has a well-known space on social networks called the Pat Bev Podcast and he was talking with Russell. “He had the best shooting season from middle to long range and nobody talks about it,” said the Philadelphia 76ers player.
To such a statement, Russell responded. “You’re right, Pat. What else do I have to do?” Said the point guard who lived his second stage as a Lakers player this season.
This year he was as an escort and on some occasions as a base. In the next season he will have more help with the arrival of Gabe Vincent, who is part of the signings that management has made for the current season.
Russell seems a more mature player compared to his first spell with the Lakers and there is talk that the team can continue with other reinforcements for the next season.
