(KMSP) - Foot Locker’s new ad featuring last year's No. 1 NBA Draft pick Karl-Anthony Towns might hit a sore spot with rapper Iggy Azalea.
In the video, Towns advises this year’s expected No. 1 pick Ben Simmons to be prepared for hard work ahead, and then turns to fellow members of the 2015 draft, Devin Booker and D’Angelo Russell, to offer more advice.
Foot Locker ad: 'It's Real Now'
Russell asks for Simmons’ cell phone, tosses it out the window and says, “Trust me,” a nod to a scandal involving Lakers teammate Nick Young and Young’s ex-fiancee Iggy Azalea.
Russell allegedly leaked a Snapchat video of Young confessing to cheating on her about a month ago. It’s probably safe to deduce Russell made a rookie mistake.
