WATCH: D’Angelo Russell screws up this Lakers possession

The Lakers made headlines over social media again, but for the wrong reasons.

In their 118-116 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers the other day, D’Angelo Russell, who is the Lakers’ leading scorer with 15.2 points per game, botched a possession all by himself.

After Lakers forward Julius Randle inbounded to him, Russell waited a few seconds before picking up the ball to try to get a 2-for-1 opportunity before halftime.

Unfortunately, it didn’t go as planned.

Watch what happens:

In some instances that becomes an advantage because it saves you precious time off of the clock, especially during crucial moments of a game. But it didn’t go Russell’s way there.

That play pretty much summed up the Lakers season.

See you on Shaqtin’ a Fool, D’Lo!
