Russell Westbrook met with LeBron James and Anthony Davis some two weeks ago at the house of James to discuss the possibility of playing together with the Los Angeles Lakers, according to Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times. That was not welcome news to social media.
“They talked about putting their egos aside and playing as one in their quest to bring the Lakers another NBA championship,” Turner wrote, via the Los Angeles Times. “Westbrook talked about how his only intention was winning and coming back home to Los Angeles to become a champion.”
James and Davis also discussed potentially changing their positions for the 2021-22 season. On top of that, Westbrook reportedly said he would be comfortable playing off the ball when James is leading the way offensively, which is something he did with the Houston Rockets when he deferred to James Harden at times.
