The 2018-2019 NBA season kicks off this week and Brooklyn Nets point guard D’Angelo Russell has his sights set getting his team back into the discussion for Eastern champs.
The former #2 overall pick from THE Ohio State University is one of the NBA’s youngest and brightest stars and that means fans like you and me will be learning a lot about him over the years. As he gets set to embark on the 82-game season, D’Angelo Russell sat down with GQ‘s YouTube team to talk about his ‘everyday carry‘ collection.
D’Angelo Russell’s everyday carry gear is slightly different than the stuff you or I can’t live without but some of it is still extremely relatable. As a rookie, he signed a 4-year contract worth $23,017,978 which will pay him more than $7 million in salary this season and that means he’s a pretty darn wealthy dude. He can afford nice things, luxurious items.
He also travels half the year for work and this means he’s a pretty seasoned veteran when it comes to packing the essentials. I don’t want to hype it up too much so without further ado, here’s D’Angelo Russell’s collection of everyday carry gear.
For those of you keeping track at home, here’s what that list of gear looked like. Also, who knew he was a magician on the sly? I’m not surprised, to be honest.
1) Muhammad Ollie Hoodie — You have to be comfortable on flights
2) Custom printed pillows of his dogs…Shout out to Bernese! I’ve got a BMD.
3) BOOKS: The Way of the Superior Man…He loves to read
4) Tom Ford Tuscan Leather Cologne
5) Jordan sneakers, favorite shoes growing up and now
6) Dolce and Gabbana Sunglasses
7) Beats Pill portable Bluetooth speaker
8) Hat. You gotta have a hat.
9) Angel Cologne…Seriously, two colognes?
10) Laptop (me too)
BONUS: 11) A soft leather duffel bag with playing cards
This is the second ’10 Things I Can’t Travel Without’ video where the person’s had cologne as part of their essentials. I think I’m slacking. I always leave my cologne at home because the bottle’s too big for the TSA and I don’t want to pay the fee to check a bag.
Maybe I need to start living that private jet lifestyle like these pro athletes so I can just skip the TSA entirely and start packing cologne. That’s a good enough reason for me to start flying private, right?
