This hasn’t been a fun few days.

How long ago do those few great games from D’Angelo Russell feel?

Somehow, he’s gone from reminding everyone why the Los Angeles Lakers took him second overall (even over Kristaps Porzingis) to randomly in head coach Luke Walton’s doghouse with zero logical explanation.

Sure, Walton has presented his side of the story, but things don’t seem to add up.

The move has led to ripple effects across the roster, including for Jordan Clarkson, whom the move was intended to showcase.

The team looks despondent, they’ve been blown out in embarrassing fashion twice and an already depressing season has found yet another new low.

So with Harrison out, who better to talk to than Ben Rosales, who’s been stuck indoors for the last two days because of the snowstorm from hell?

We talk about the Russell situation and a great piece he and Jerry Khachoyan put together regarding draft prospects Lakers fans should be watching in the tournament.
