D'Angelo Russell is the latest of the Lakers' young players who are reportedly going to be working hard to get better this offseason With news of Jordan Clarkson and Julius Randle's devotion to getting in the gym and getting better this offseason fresh off the presses, it was only just a matter of time until D'Angelo Russell was added to the bunch. Now, just a few days after selecting their new head coach, Magic Johnson has revealed that he is excited to announce that he will be working out with Russell this summer and looks "forward to being a mentor to D'Angelo....

This is very exciting! Both bigger, 'not as fast' point guards. He's the perfect mentor for Russell. Good news is that now Lakers have chosen what they want to play Russell as, the point guard. Give him the ultimate green light and let him do what he does. I'm happy for him that he no longer has to dribble the ball up only to dump off to Kobe and run to a corner.

But I don't want to only hear the things I want to hear, I want to see results. D'Angelo really has to be in the gym every single day working on his weaknesses. He knows what he needs to do, he says all the right things. He just has to go out and do it.

He better perform next season. He can't blame the coach or the system that's implemented anymore. It's all on him now. He got his wish.

I think he wants to get better. What better way to do it. As long as he's sincere with it.

Some of you kill me with those "he better perform" statements. Or what? You're going to go to the Staples center and key his car. Did he ever blame the coach or system or state he wish Scott was gone? Sounds like you've taken words from a forum or two and put them in his mouth. That's not cool.

I agree 100% with you gem, I don't remember once hearing d'angelo talk bad about Scott or the system. I can already imagine all the negative comments on russell if he doesn't come out the gate averaging 20 points and 8 assists. Also i feel as though people heard the constant belittling of scott towards russell and automatically assumed russell had hard feelings and was turning on the coach. Plus he's only 20 years old so chill out with these "he better perform" statements.
