Long story short, Russell made himself the most untrustworthy teammate or friend in the league by recording something Young shared with him in a very-much private conversation. Subsequently, the video somehow leaked to the entire world, and the rookie point guard has learned the hard way that snitching doesn’t win you any fans. Apparently, things have been even worse with his teammates.
Plenty around the league have already shared their thoughts on this situation. Add Matt Barnes, who has his own trust issues with certain individuals in the league, to the list of people who didn’t appreciate what Russell did:
Folks got the game so ass backwards these days you don’t know who to trust! https://t.co/rLWovOLCQE
