Westbrook and James have been hanging out a lot recently and people had been speculating about the pair teaming up for years. Well, it’s finally a reality, and now the trio of Westbrook, Davis, and James has a lot of people excited.
The Lakers dealt Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Montrezl Harrell, Kyle Kuzma and some draft capital in order to take on Westbrook, but their insistence of putting a third star next to LeBron and Davis was one that was going to materialize at some point over the summer.
LeBron James is excited, Anthony Davis is excited, and Russell Westbrook must be excited to return home as well, given that he played college ball at UCLA.
The Lakers have a lot to look forward to and rest assured they are far from done just yet with free agency around the corner.
