Louisville native, and top NBA Draft prospect, D’Angelo Russell has some thoughts on Louisville’s lack of an NBA franchise. And just like you and me, he wishes there was one. Russell, who recently worked out for the Los Angeles Lakers, had this to say about where he wishes to begin his professional career,
I don’t think he is alone in thinking that would be great.
The Lakers have the second pick in this year’s NBA Draft and Russell is expected to be drafted anywhere from the first pick through the third. He is an extremely rare talent, one such we haven’t seen come out of the city of Louisville since Rajon Rondo.
Cheers to hoping we can one day make his wish come true. In the meantime, I’m sure the entire city will be behind the kid wherever he does land.
