Russell Westbrook was one of the best point guards in the entire NBA just a few years ago. He was a triple-double machine that could carry a team with limited talent around him. Unfortunately, he has bounced around the league as of late and last year, he had a down season with the Los Angeles Lakers.
Russ has been very vocal about how frustrating things have been for him. He criticized former Lakers coach Frank Vogel for the way he was utilized, and now, it seems like Russ is mad about all of the rumors pertaining to him being traded.
As you can see in the screenshot below, Russ liked a tweet from a fan who went after the Lakers for trying to trade Russ. The fan pointed towards Russ’ strong finish to the season, and how the Lakers would be crazy to get rid of Russ right now.
Clearly, Russ is not on good terms with the Lakers right now. Unfortunately for him, he is still on the roster, and it will probably stay that way throughout the season given the lack of market for Westbrook right now.
The Lakers plan to make Russ a three-point specialist.
The team is also hopeful for a corner-3 shooting percentage bump from Russell Westbrook next season, sources said.
As for roster tinkering, Pelinka explained patience will be key in any potential moves the team makes, sources said. In a collaborative effort, all parties appear to be aligned on a common vision of seeing how the roster plays out before any drastic moves are sought.
