Los Angeles Lakers legend and former team president Magic Johnson may be on vacation, but he’s still paying attention to what his old team is doing. On Thursday, the Lakers executed a major trade, acquiring Russell Westbrook and two future second-round picks from the Washington Wizards in exchange for Kyle Kuzma, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Montrezl Harrell and the No. 22 overall pick in tonight’s first round.

That's right my boy Westbrook it's about time they make a VERY good trade. it takes a BIG work load off of AD and James but we need players coming off the bench that can score without fearing worrying about making mistakes and being yelled at by James. Because believe this Westbrook isn't worrying about James Westbrook will put up points alot of energy another Steve Nash energy so younger players can feed off that. we need players like that.

they don't have to be Elites shooters Russell Westbrook also gets rebound remember he's a triple-double walking and even he missed Anthony Davis or Lebron James or subject to get the rebound so the better question is who can stop them attacking the rim every time up and down the court all three of them just like Durant Harding and Irving but more aggressive the percentage of a layup or a dunk is higher than that of a jump shot so Advantage Lakers

Lakers would have been much better off if they had pulled the trade of for Hield. Westbrook may be a better player but buddy would have been a better fit. That bench is looking mighty empty right now.
