Lakers’ D’Angelo Russell sinks backwards half courter, celebrates with Kobe fist pump

Saturday was the rookie photo shoot, which mainly meant all the top draft picks from June were in one gym goofing off.

That includes the Lakers’ D’Angelo Russell, who knocked down a backwards half courter, then celebrated with a Kobe Bryant first pump. Unless Russell was doing an impression of Brandon Armstrong doing his Kobe impression — in which case he nailed it.

What I really want to see is Russell break that out during the season with Kobe on the court.
