Exclusive: Denver Broncos Emmanuel Sanders Reacts To D’Angelo Russell, Nick Young Controversy
Denver Broncos star Emmanuel Sanders hopes that Lakers players, D’Angelo Russell and Nick Young can work out there differences.
Earlier this week, Nick and D’Angelo made headlines after an audio recording hit the web of Young admitting to cheating on his fiancée, Iggy Azalea, with a 19-year-old woman. The man behind the secret recording … Nick’s teammate, Russell.
“That situation is just crazy. I’m just happy it’s not on the Broncos,” Sanders told us exclusively while at the 2016 iHeart Music Awards. “Obviously, in our locker room we would handle it differently.”
The wide receiver continued, “I wish both of them the best. I wish the Los Angeles Lakers all the success and I hate that that situation occurred. I know D’Angelo is feeling a type of way. I know Nick is feeling a type of way. Hopefully they can work it out for the betterment of the team.”
Prior to Wednesday’s game against the Miami Heat, Russell said during a press conference that he was apologetic for taping the conversation between the group of guys and that the video simply “got in the wrong hands. This wasn’t a prank.”
As for where Nick stands, he explained last week “it’s best if me and D’Angelo handle the situation we have in a private matter outside the media.”
Iggy, by the way, arrived to iHeart alone, but was still sporting her engagement ring.
