LeBron James Sums up Russell Westbrook’s Dunk on Rudy Gobert With 19 Emojis
January 18, 2022
The Los Angeles Lakers broke their losing streak and beat the Utah Jazz. Some analysts thought that LeBron James and his teammates would lose this game, too. Well, the purple and gold did a wonderful job on the basketball floor. Russell Westbrook had a cool moment during the game, and Rudy Gobert will always remember it.
Westbrook had a good game against the Jazz and his poster on Gobert will be making headlines for a really long time. Many would agree that this is the best dunk in the regular season. No player has been able to accomplish anything like this in the 2021-22 NBA season.
LeBron was more than impressed with Westbrook’s performance. The four-time NBA champion took to his Instagram stories to praise his teammate.

Broddie is one of the most competitive players in the NBA. The Lakers traded three players to get him. Rob Pelinka gave up on Kyle Kuzma, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, and Montrezl Harrell to get Westbrook. Well, Broddie’s arrival in Los Angeles wasn’t of great help for the Lakers. He struggles getting a shot. In the game against the Jazz, Broddie went 5-for-14 from the field. He finished the night with 15 points and eight rebounds.
LA needs more than that. Westbrook didn’t meet expectations in the regular season. What happened to his monster numbers? We will have to wait and see what happens to Westbrook later in the season. If his struggles continue, the Lakers will have to find a solution. Trading him won’t be that easy. Westbrook is a talented veteran and he is set to get a lot of money. NBA teams won’t trade for a struggling veteran.
When it comes to LeBron, he had a spectacular night. He finished the win vs Utah with 25 points, seven rebounds, and seven assists while shooting 9-for-20 from the field and 3-for-8 from deep.
The Lakers were able to pull out a 101-95 win. These wins will motivate players to do even better later in the season. Will they lose more games? Will Anthony Davis’ return change anything?
