Russell Westbrook is ecstatic after getting traded to the Los Angeles Lakers from the Washington Wizards. The All-Star point guard found his way to L.A. this past week after a very moved Thursday night.
Westbrook is happy to be where he is now, creating a Big 3 with Anthony Davis and LeBron James at Staples Center. Following two tumultuous stints with the Houston Rockets and Washington Wizards, Russ is ready to face a different challenge with the Lakers, trying to win the NBA championship.
He's all about the Los Angeles lifestyle and recently was spotted hanging out with actor and comedian Kevin Hart. Fans and paparazzi waited for them as they headed to their respective cars.
Some congratulated Brodie for being a Laker, and others tried to get something from Hart now that the purple and gold acquired such a big player like Russ.
Although they still have work to do, the future is bright for the Lakers. The front office needs to make some more moves this summer to put together a competitive team to reclaim the NBA trophy.
Russ will play a key role in the team's success, and if he can click with Bron and AD, the Lakers will be a menace for the rest of the association.
