Watch D'Angelo Russell show sense of humor in Foot Locker ad

NBA rookies are young, of course, and there is no such thing as them receiving too much advice about being a pro.

Former Ohio State star D’Angelo Russell knows this all too well. If you missed it, Russell did this as a rookie and it backfired big time.

Well, no one can say the 2015 Big Ten Freshman of the Year doesn’t have a sense of humor or that he takes himself too seriously.

Russell stars in a new Foot Locker commercial that features a trio of 2015 NBA draft picks offering advice to likely No. 1 or No. 2 pick Ben Simmons, out of LSU.

Russell’s (perfect) advice?

Get rid of the cell phone.

In fact, Russell threw Simmons’ phone into the ocean, saying, “Trust me.”

So classic!
