Russell Westbrook is the newest superstar to don the colors of the Los Angeles Lakers. Last week, the Lakers completed a trade that sent Kyle Kuzma, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, and Montrezl Harrell to the Washington Wizards in exchange for Russell Westbrook.
Westbrook joins LeBron James and Anthony Davis in LA to form the NBA's latest big three behind Brooklyn's own with Kevin Durant, James Harden, and Kyrie Irving. For Westbrook, this team will give him the opportunity to return and play in his hometown of Los Angeles. This big three will be the best opportunity for Westbrook to win an NBA championship since his time with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Westbrook will team up with LeBron James and Anthony Davis for the first time in his career. James and Westbrook have been linked with each other in the past, but have never made any move to join forces.
