With Los Angeles down by double digits, things couldn't get any worse for D'Angelo Russell and the Lakers, right? Wrong. They can get comically worse with the help of a laser pass from LeBron James.
Previously, we had Man Getting Hit by Tennis Ball. Russell now belongs in that company. It looked serious at first, especially considering that Manu Ginobili is out after testicular surgery, but Russell got back up and continued playing. So now we can laugh about it.
Kobe got a laugh from it.
