Riley Russell, the adorable son of NBA star D’Angelo Russell and his partner Laura Ivaniukas, recently celebrated his first birthday, and the Lakers-themed party they threw was nothing short of a slam dunk. The event had everyone wishing they could score an invite.
The party was a delightful spectacle of purple and gold, paying tribute to the Los Angeles Lakers, the team D’Angelo Russell now proudly represents once again. D’Angelo, who last played for the Lakers in 2017, is set to make a triumphant return as the team’s point guard this year, and the Lakers-themed birthday couldn’t have been more fitting.
Riley’s Lakers-inspired outfit stole the show. The little one donned a miniature Lakers jersey, looking every bit the part of a future basketball star. The decorations featured basketball player cards, posters, and banners, creating an authentic NBA ambiance that left everyone gushing with excitement.
As the Lakers gear up for their upcoming season, with the first preseason game scheduled for October 7 against the Golden State Warriors, fans are eager to see what D’Angelo Russell will bring to the court. Speculation is rife that he is poised for a stellar season, and the Lakers-themed celebration for Riley only added to the anticipation.
Until the Lakers hit the court, we’ll be keeping a close eye on this little MVP in the making. Happy 1st Birthday, Riley! Your Lakers-themed bash was a slam dunk, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for you and your basketball-loving family.
