Lakers twitter rips team for Russell Westbrook trade

Lakers, Russell Westbrook, LeBron James, Twitter

The Los Angeles Lakers finally did it. On the night of the 2021 NBA Draft, the Lakers acquired star guard Russell Westbrook in a blockbuster trade with the Washington Wizards, pairing Westbrook with LeBron James and Anthony Davis and bringing Westbrook back home where he played his college ball.

On paper, the move is fantastic and a lot of Lakers fans went absolutely wild. On the other hand, some Lakers fans were not happy with the move at all, and Lakers Twitter (and NBA Twitter, for that matter) was an absolute mess.

Of course, the move brought mixed reactions from NBA fans in general. On one hand, the Lakers have formed a formidable Big 3. Then there is always the other side of the spectrum as well.

The reactions were glorious, as to be expected especially with a move of this magnitude. The Lakers went out and got their guy, somebody that LeBron James had wanted for quite some time.

But again, fans showed their remorse with the move.

What a tiring night. They added a true star point guard. Can he shoot? No. But he has a high motor and is tenacious, and LeBron James and Anthony Davis are a perfect duo to pair next to him as they hope to bring another NBA title to Los Angeles.

No matter what, moves like these will always be criticized, especially when your the Lakers,  but let’s wait until the season begins.
