Retired NBA player Stephen Jackson recently weighed in on the debacle within the Lakers camp, surrounding D’Angelo Russell and Nick Young.
When asked by ESPN how he’d handle the situation, he had the following to say:
“Hey, snitches get stitches,” Jackson said. “Old rule: Snitches get stitches. Especially from your teammate. You don’t expect that from your teammate. See, it’s a new day in basketball I don’t understand. It’s supposed to be a brotherhood. Now, you got D-Fisher sleeping with his teammate’s ex-wife, all kinds of stuff going on that’s not cool in basketball.”
A reminder that Stephen Jackson was also one of the players who jumped in the stands to fight in Auburn Hills. pic.twitter.com/BYPMRdkQUA
