  1. Westbrook will be hating life as soon as he realizes LeBron is a drama queen. I am sure about that.

  2. I see what the Lakers are doing. It’s not about champions it’s about ticket sales. They understand basketball is an entertainment so why not assemble a cast of superstars to increase their revenue for the shareholders

  3. I'm mad because, I'm both a Lakers fan but being from Baltimore I started to watch my Wiz again!

  4. By the way, the trade is a B++ for the Lakers, but giving up 3 players + the 2021 draft pick is a bit too much for a player like Westbrook, Bradley Beal would have been a A+. Now the question is who can the Lakers sign to complement the 3 stars, with so little money to play with!???🤔🤔🤔

  5. I said it before and I will say it Again!!!! Lebron is turning 37, he is already a Billionaire. If he truly wants to insure a championship or 2, before it is all over. He should take a payout to get the best players around him.

  6. A. Both teams won. Little bit Bad for Lakers for loosing KCP. He was very valuable. Lakers best 3 and D guy and a tough guy who never gets injured. We need replacement for him at the shooting guard position. Either Norman Powel or Tim Hardaway Jr. I don't know if that is realistic but it would make sense from a basketbal point of view. We need a sharp spot up shooter and they both offer that! I would love to have Tim Hardaway Jr in this roster!!!

  7. Let's get DeRozan on veteran minimum now. Still try and keep Carusso TT, Wes, maybe Carmelo , Markief, there's allot of veteran centers out there , McGee, Whiteside, Noel, Howard. Lakers are gonna be solid..

  8. C. Russ is not a shooter as much as a scorer. Not a natural point guard but more than serviceable. High energy guy but doesn’t fit a true need. Lakers still need a shooter and maybe a better big in terms of athleticism on defense and price. Drummond is too pricey for what Lakers need at center. This move by itself is not putting them over the top.

  9. JJ Riddick, Derozan, Carmelo, Conley, jamychal-green,
    wayne-ellington, kelly-olynyk, doug-mcdermott,
    dewayne-dedmon, bobby-portis, derrick-rose, torrey-craig, maurice-harkless, hassan-whiteside, rudy-gay, patty-mills,

  10. Love the move !!!! Russ love his game . Let’s goooo !!! Rob P. Way too go man 🤗. Laker nation
