He has yet to again hit the heights that he did during his first year with the T-Wolves but he is still a vital part of the team’s lineup and is still considered one of the most exciting guards in the league.
He has been quietly racking up a lot of great stats since 2015.
D'Angelo Russell became the first player from the 2015 draft class to reach 2,500 career assists.

In fact, Russell just became the first player from the 2015 draft class to reach 2,500 career assists.
That just goes to show how seriously he takes his job: he’s not just there to get buckets, he also takes pride in finding other players on the floor and helping them score too.
With the best roster he’s ever been a part of, can Russell finally win a ring?
DLo Doing Things
When it comes to assists, Russell has quite a few players to choose from when he’s looking to pass.
But now Rudy Gobert is part of the mix for the Timberwolves.
When Gobert was signed to the team in the summer, it was thought that he would completely step up the team’s offense and defense.
He has certainly helped but the team hasn’t exactly clicked as people wanted.
They are currently exactly at .500 with a 10-10 record and, ironically, the 10th spot in the West.
The Timberwolves are obviously still finding their footing but the promise for greatness is still there, especially with guys like Russell on the court.
