Yesterday was one of the wildest days the NBA has lived in a while. First, Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the Lakers were trading for Buddy Hield. Then, Shams Charania said that they were going after Russell Westbrook.
The Lakers completed a huge blockbuster deal to get yet another All-Star next to LeBron James and Anthony Davis, all while the world was waiting to see the outcome of the 2021 NBA Draft.
That's why, even though Westbrook stole plenty of headlines, first-overall pick Cade Cunningham believes that he didn't steal his thunder and that, once it's all said and done, last night will be remembered as his draft day, not as the day the Lakers got Westbrook.
