If this trend of the Golden State Warriors jumping out to–and not relinquishing–large leads in these NBA Finals continues, viewers and analysts alike are going to have to look elsewhere for entertainment. Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson are just going through the motions, for crying out loud, and the Cavs still can’t come within a stones throw of a close contest.
Shaquille O’Neal, Grant Hill and Kenny Smith seem to have a grasp of that concept. The three former All-Star players gathered with Warriors center Andrew Bogut after last night’s 33-point shlacking of the Cavaliers, and during the conversation, Bogut reminded Shaq that he’s a bit of an urban legend back in Australia, if you catch his drift.
Shaq failed to drown out what Bogut was trying to say, but he was certainly prepared for the clapback. O’Neal erupted with laughter and bellowed “Welcome to D’Angelo Russell Studios!,” in reference to the Lakers rookie secretly recording Nick Young admitting to cheating on his fiancè Iggy Azalea.
It looks like D’Angelo Russell-ing is the new term for when a bro breaks code and exposes his fellow bro. Tough year for the rookie.
