D'Angelo Russell imparts NBA rookie wisdom to Ben Simmons in hilarious comercial


It wasn't long ago that 76ers fans were hoping for D'Angelo Russell to be the name their team called on draft day.

That obviously didn't go their way and Russell ended up on a fledgling L.A. Lakers squad. Perhaps his most memorable moment from his rookie season was actually the trouble he found himself in off the court thanks to a cell phone, a shady teammate in Nick Young, and some perceived snitching.

Sixers' nation now seems to be amped up about the prospect of Ben Simmons being the organization's No. 1 pick on Thursday.

Foot Locker took the opportunity to make a hilarious commercial featuring those two guys as well as Devin Booker and Karl Anthony-Towns. 

It is the Russell performance that was SportsCenter Top-10-worthy.

​Nick Young may not have enjoyed it as much as the rest of us.
