It is possible for us all to overthink things once in a while. It is also possible for NBA teams to come to that realization as well.

It is not uncommon for a problem to have an obvious solution to it. In any case, we try to find a better one. There is a possibility that in the future, we will realize that we had a solution right in front of us the whole time. 

There will be a problem that has an obvious solution to it. They somehow try to talk themselves into thinking that there is a different solution to their problem. 

Let’s take the Los Angeles Lakers as an example. The name Russell Westbrook has been linked to just about every team in the league in recent years.

There are, however, a handful of rumors that have persisted more than others. There are two obvious solutions to this problem. 

The trade that sent him to the Utah Jazz, for example, was a good example of this 


Los Angeles Lakers Receive: G Mike Conley, G/F Malik Beasley, F/C Kelly Olynyk 

Utah Jazz Receive: G Russell Westbrook, 2027 First-Round Pick (LAL), 2029 First-Round Pick (LAL)
