EL SE­GUNDO, Calif. — Lakers coach By­ron Scott is ``dis­ap­pointed’’ that an un­flat­ter­ing video of Nick Young ap­par­ently taken by rookie team­mate D’An­gelo Rus­sell be­came pub­lic. Scott de­clined to ad­dress any de­tails about an­other em­bar­rass­ment for the West­ern Con­fer­ence’s worst team af­ter their shootaround for Wed­nes­day’s game against Mi­ami. Rus­sell ap­par­ently recorded a video in which he asked Young about be­ing with women other than his fi­ancee, rap­per Iggy Aza­lea. The video be­gan cir­cu­lat­ing on­line in the past week. ESPN.com re­ported Tues­day that the breach of locker room pro­to­col has driven a wedge be­tween sev­eral Lakers and Rus­sell, the No. 2 over­all pick in last year’s draft. Rus­sell de­clined to speak to re­porters at the shootaround. Rus­sell and Young will ad­dress the me­dia be­fore Wed­nes­day night’s game, the Lakers say.
