The D'Angelo Russell - Lonzo Ball dynamic has provided plenty of intrigue for Los Angeles sports fans, and a recently deleted tweet from the former has provided further material for discussion.
Russell is the Lakers point guard that could be on the way out the door if Ball -- an LA area native and UCLA standout -- falls to the team in the upcoming NBA Draft. Of course for this to happen, the Lakers still need to land a top-three pick in next week's draft lottery.
On Wednesday night, Russell stirred excitement on social media with an ominous Twitter post.

This Tweet was a non-story when it was sent out. If anything, it seems to be a compliment to the top draft prospect.
So why would Russell delete this? Your guess is as good as mine.
