D’Angelo Russell: Magic Johnson’s Criticism ‘irrelevant’

on

Ready to start fresh in Brooklyn, D’Angelo Russell said Magic Johnson’s criticism of his leadership skills is “irrelevant.”

“It is good to be here,” Russell said at the Nets’ practice facility in Brooklyn. “Can’t really control that, what they say, I’m gone. So it’s the past. I am here now. It’s irrelevant, honestly.”

During his introductory news conference with the Brooklyn Nets, Russell repeatedly tried to turn the page from the Los Angeles Lakers to his new home. But surely, Russell will hear about what Johnson said plenty more this coming season.
