LeBron James has another star on his team... and it's not Lola Bunny! Russell Westbrook was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers as part of a record-breaking deal!! You can read more!
Rumours had been swirling for weeks... many expected the Lake Show would try to bring another piece to help King and Co. return to the NBA Finals.
It's now a reality, with LA sending Kyle Kuzma and Kentavious Caldwell–Pope, Montrezl harrell, and a 2021 pick to Washington Wizards in return for the 2017 MVP. According to ESPN.
This is a huge move. Brodie is a triple-double machine. He averages 23 points, 7 boards and 8 assists in his 13-season career.
It allows Westbrook, a Southern Cali native, to go back to his roots to play for his hometown. It's a great idea!
LeBron has not yet addressed the trade... however, he's hosted Westbrook in his L.A. crib before so we know he's open to the idea of bringing in another friend.
The question now is: Can this new Big 3 replace the Brooklyn Nets' Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving as the most dangerous trio of the game? What do you think?
