I travel every other day, and sometimes every day,
00:03
and you gotta throw out everything on your bed
00:05
and set out what you're gonna wear
00:08
and what you need so you don't forget.
00:11
What's up, GQ?
00:12
I'm D'Angelo Russell and these are my essentials.
00:15
(hip hop music)
00:18
My hoodie, I think everybody needs a hoodie.
00:20
This is my main essential, I would say.
00:22
It comes in handy, you have to be comfortable.
00:25
Flights can be really long.
00:27
It's actually a Muhammad Ollie hoodie,
00:28
but like, Muhammad Ali on a skateboard, so like Ollie.
00:33
Pillow, I have two, my dogs.
00:36
This is my girl dog, Molly, a Bernadoodle,
00:39
Bernese Mountain Dog mixed with a poodle.
00:41
That one was a gift, so I didn't ask questions.
00:44
I just kept it.
00:48
A book, I like to read.
00:49
The Way of the Superior Man is absolutely a book
00:51
that I think all men should try to get a hold of.
00:55
Just how to be a man, how to treat your woman.
00:57
I think it's just a great message in general,
00:59
and you look smarter reading a book in the airport.
01:03
This cologne, I definitely think you gotta smell good.
01:06
It's Tom Ford, Tuscan Leather.
01:08
You need it, add it to your essentials.
01:12
Jordans, shoes in general, but Jordans,
01:15
definitely my favorite shoes growing up, Jordan 14s.
01:19
I think you always should have a pair of shoes
01:21
you can operate in and hoop in at the same time
01:25
and Jordans have always been that.
01:28
Glasses, these are DG, Dolce & Gabbana.
01:31
I was in the airport, and I stopped by the airport store.
01:35
I needed sunglasses, and these caught my eye.
01:39
Oh, I'll buy the glasses on the side of the street
01:42
that the guys are selling in SoHo.
01:44
I'm that guy.
01:45
It doesn't really matter where I get any of my items
01:48
as long as it looks good.
01:51
That's the Beats Speaker Pill.
01:53
Just in general I think everybody loves music.
01:55
I control all the music in the locker room.
01:58
Whenever there's music playing,
02:00
most likely I turned it on.
02:02
A hat.
02:03
I have multiple hats, but this one in general,
02:04
it has my number and a few Brooklyn patches on it.
02:08
Number one, why'd I pick number one?
02:09
I don't know, I always see mascots
02:11
have the number one on.
02:12
Everybody sees number one, it's simple.
02:16
Another cologne bottle.
02:17
This is inspired by my dad, though, honestly.
02:19
He used to have this cologne growing up,
02:21
and he used to smell so good,
02:22
so I was like, man, what is that?
02:24
And we always had a bottle.
02:26
I don't even know the name of it,
02:27
but it is a ...
02:29
Angel. Angel.
02:32
Look good, gotta smell good, as simple as that.
02:35
Get you a bottle.
02:38
Laptop, do work, shop, watch film.
02:42
Long flights, you need it.
02:45
Do it, you know how Nike just does it?
02:48
I just think do it is better,
02:49
so I just kinda, I cut that part off.
02:52
All your essentials definitely need to go into a bag.
02:55
This definitely comes in handy for me.
02:58
I don't know, it was a gift.
03:00
I assume it's from my mom.
03:02
When I got it it didn't say who it was from,
03:04
but it was a message like a mom would write.
03:08
I have cards.
03:10
(upbeat music)
03:12
It was actually a gift from CA Sports,
03:14
shout out to CA Sports.
03:16
We play Spades, I like to do magic as well.
03:20
I can. Yeah?
03:21
(man laughs)
03:22
Platform I've been needing.
03:24
This is definitely the plat--
03:25
I need somebody to participate though.
03:28
Straight outta Penn State.
03:30
(laughter)
03:30
This is the Jess.
03:32
She's an essential, if you didn't know.
03:35
If you know Jess, you know she's an essential.
03:37
My guy, Mike, he taught me this trick.
03:40
You gotta count that for me, though.
03:43
20. 20.
03:46
21, all right.
03:48
21 cards here, right? Mm-hmm.
03:50
Out of all these cards, you gotta pick one.
03:51
Okay.
03:52
You already got your one? I got one.
03:53
One, if I ask you what it is, you can tell me?
03:56
Yep. What is it?
03:57
No, don't tell me, don't tell me.
03:58
All right.
03:59
Yeah, don't tell me, all right.
04:00
I'm just making sure.
04:02
(light music)
04:05
If this is your card, would that impress you?
04:08
Very much.
04:10
(light music)
04:11
Is that your card?
04:13
No. No.
04:14
I didn't think it was her card, either.
04:15
I was just asking, I was just asking.
04:17
All right, all right.
04:19
All right, so we got five sets right here.
04:22
You're gonna pick two, I'm gonna pick two.
04:24
Okay, these.
04:25
So you pick those two, and I'm gonna pick these two.
04:28
Okay.
04:29
And we're just gonna get rid of these.
04:30
Okay.
04:31
Out of these four, there's four left.
04:33
You pick two, I pick two.
04:34
I'm gonna pick these two.
04:36
I got these two, you gotta get rid of one,
04:37
I have to get rid of one.
04:38
Okay, I'm gonna get rid of that one.
04:40
I'm gonna get rid of that one.
04:41
So we got two cards left.
04:42
We gotta get rid of one.
04:43
I pick that one.

Get rid of it?
04:46
Get rid of it.
04:48
So we're gonna get rid of it.
04:49
