D’Angelo Russell, words of frustration with his role after knockout in Game 2?

The second adventure of D’Angelo Russell at Los Angeles Lakers is not progressing very well. Despite some good performances, such as the 19 points and 7 assists in Game-1 against Memphis, his performance has been very up and down. And Race-2 was a demonstration: in addition to a less than flawless defense, D-Loading scored only 5 points on 2/11 shooting, 5 fouls committed, 4 assists and 3 turnovers.

After the game, in routine interviews in the locker room, Russell also seemed frustrated with his role in the Lakers’ offense. The player corrected a reporter who had called him. “point guard”, instead calling himself simply “a basketball player.”.

“I’m a basketball player, you can’t keep saying I’m a point guard … On this team I’m a basketball player, not really a point guard.” D’Angelo Russell said. Even at almost 39 years old, LeBron James is in fact often the main ball handler for the yellow-purple. And although The King in Game 2 scored 28 points with 12 rebounds, Russell doesn’t seem to like this style of play.
