VIDEO: D’Angelo Russell Throws First Pitch At Dodgers Game

D’Angelo Russell is a great passer – he was voted the best playmaker in the class of 2015 by his fellow rookies – so it was no surprise that he was able to throw a decent pitch at a Los Angeles Dodgers game last night.

In a video posted by the Lakers’ official Instagram account, Russell, a left-hander, can be seen throwing out the first pitch at Dodger Stadium.

Unlike when Paul Pierce threw out the first pitch back in July (and was subsequently booed) Russell was cheered on by the crowd.

Yup, L.A.’s definitely still a Laker town.
