As he has strived for establishing more consistency in his game, Lakers guard D’Angelo Russell still has offered promising signs in his development as a scorer and passer. Because of that potential, Russell has done enough spark marketing interest, the latest involving an appearance in Gatorade’s new commercial that touts its new “Flow Thirst Quencher.”
After Russell takes a sip of Gatorade’s new drink, the commercial shows the Lakers’ second-year guard using his playmaking and quickness to attack the basket.
Because of those skills, Russell averaged 15.6 points, 4.8 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 1.4 steals per game, numbers that only Magic Johnson matched as a Laker in his sophomore season. Because of those skills, Russell is also landing endorsement deals.
